I'm a bit obsessed with Seether's version of the song for those who recognize the title. It's teasingly haunting and this dress moves the way the song lulls.
Lol told you all I've been busy! Tried photographing in a new corner of my room too haha. Started work on three dresses (and there's more to come) aside from working on hair pieces and little things for myself. I found a great little skin-tight booty-licious dress at Forever 21 a few months back and let me tell you.... it was REALLY short and REALLY tight. Needless to say, I still loved the rouching and the color so I bought it despite it definitely not being my size lol. Sat it down with the sewing machine for the past three days and turned it into this. (:
I think that's one of my favorite things about sewing is being able to turn other pieces into whatever I want. XD
Anyway, it's 7" wide vintage embroidered French alencon trim, a 12" vintage lace trim, black babydoll lace trim, black insertion lace, lots of rhinestones, vintage glass bugle beads, smokey glass drops, purple satin, black mesh, and one mutilated Forever 21 dress. All of the beading is by hand and there are four draped strands on either side, five tiered strands on the bottom of each purple satin panel, as well as more beading on the front and back at the bottom. When this thing twirls, it's so awesome... the purple flounces out from underneath it perfectly and it packs a lot more fabric than it looks so that makes the twirl that much more spectacular!
Bust: 28 - 38 inches | Waist: 25 - 30 inches | Hips: up to 38 inches
It's shown with my Victorian onyx pendant. (:
This piece is SOLD.
Thanks for viewing! <3
Did you go to a design school if so what school?
No I didn't. I'm entirely self-taught in both clothing and drawing/painting. (:
Very cool Just wondering, I want to design clothing and you attention to detail is amazing. Where do you buy your fabrics? or do you make them?
Thank you! I started by taking apart old clothing and seeing how they were put together and then I just jumped into it and played around. I buy fabrics locally at vintage/antique fabric stores as well as on Etsy and Ebay. (:
Very cool I love the fabrics you pick they are very ornate and intricate and flowy yea I take apart stuff too and I also alter a lot of stuff like take something plain and add stuff too it
Thank you! I'm very much in love with soft, flowing fabrics and laces and intricate details. It's one of the reasons I started making clothing since I just never could find anything like that in stores haha. That's a great way to get into making clothing! I still do that haha! XD
Yea I know what you mean by not finding what you want in stores, also I think the quality of clothing sold in stores has really started suffering while the prices rise. I'm willing to pay quite a bit for what I wear but only if the clothing is worth it and what I want and the quality matches the pricing. Also it seems the little details have just been completely forgotten about
sdfasdfkalsdvnwinfv ITS BOOTIFUL ASDFNLCNWIOENC I DON'T KNOW HOW TO DESCRIBE THIS...
OMG i can't believe this is going on sale, it's beautiful!
Haha yeah, every now and then I'll decide to sell one instead of keeping it as sometimes what I think is my style in my head, isn't after I get it finished. XD

Thanks, hun! I'm actually no longer taking clothing commissions. Don't have the time for it anymore. D:

Yeah, I might in the future but I have a huge show coming up in September and so I'm focusing on that right now. About to close all commissions until after this show is over.
I would love to do a photo shoot with this dress! <3 Love it!!!
