Moon by JenniferWeiler Moon by JenniferWeiler


Haha told you all I was working on a bunch of dresses! :la:

This one kept reminding me of The Phantom of the Opera LOL. A bunch of you are going to shoot me but I don't like PotO except for the masquerade scene haha. I think it's the crazy costumes and dancing around on pretty stairs that does it for me.

Even though I kept being reminded of Christine's wardrobe, it's actually inspired by the "Fox and Moon" story I keep badgering you all to death with haha! The character Moon is based off of me and if I was the moon, I would walk around in extravagantly long, silk chiffon nightgowns and robes. So a little piece of that wardrobe is now real. (:

Anyway, dismantled two vintage dresses for this one and used tons of old scraps I had laying around to piece it together. It's light and flowy and the train is subtle when you walk around in it. YES, it's see-through because it's made as a nightgown piece. On this mannequin the shoulders look normal but they're off-shoulder. This mannequin is NOT my size hahaha. XD

Materials: Silk Chiffon, Alencon Lace, Old Vintage Lace Dress, Beads, Faux Pearls, Embroidered Appliques, Beaded Appliques
This piece is SOLD.

Thanks for viewing! <3

This... Is just -stunning-. I have been looking everywhere for a dress like this for my wedding. My husband and I got married four years ago, in a very small ceremony which none of our families could attend. Now that my husband has been discharged from the Marine Corps for wounds gained in duty, we've been planning to have another wedding/"vow renewal" maybe next year, on our fifth anniversary for all of our families to attend. I've always wanted a dress that was traditional 1920's/1930's in style, but it has proven to be nearly impossible to find one to my liking or in good enough shape to wear.

Do you do dresses like this regularly? Are you able to do commissions for dresses of this type (the one above)? How long does it usually take you to complete a dress such as this?

Thank you so much for the kind words, hun and congratulations on almost five years! Sorry to hear about the wounds your husband sustained but at least now you have the opportunity to settle down a bit. (:

I do sometimes accept commission work for clothing but currently I am both booked up and not accepting anymore at least until after my September show. I can accept work for a piece in this style though I never repeat myself as I use vintage fabrics and scraps to create almost everything I do. This particular piece took about five days to complete. With commission work though, you have to take into consideration the time it takes to order materials and for them to come in and that can take a few weeks.

I will be honest with you, after my September show I may not be opening for clothing commissions again as it's something I just do for fun and I'm getting too busy with my career as an artist to have room for clothing commission work. If you're watching me, I will post in my journal when and if a slot opens for clothing and you're welcome to contact me about it then.

Hope that helps and thank you for the interest. (:

ok this is scary and intimidating, because I just read the comment of the artist requesting to use your gown as a drawing inspiration, and I had been struggling with finding courage to do the same exact request ^^; I now sound like a copycat, but indeed, I love this piece and would love to attempt drawing it, but if I could use it as an outfit for one of my characters, I would be even more honored. I would credit you as the maker of the outfit, obviously. But I really feel intimidated in drawing so many details and lace, it would definately be a challenge and I don't want to ruin it. I hope you don't mind a second request so close to the other one.

Haha it's quite alright, hun! I generally let people draw them all the time as long as they give credit and try to change at least one thing to make it their own. (:

Lace is definitely a challenge, I have problems drawing it sometimes as well. I'd love to see the finished drawing when you get around to it! :hug:

Yes it does have a sort of PotO Christine dressing gown aura about it. Though FAR more lovelier, says I!

Thank ye for making it and sporting it. It's truly amazing. Especially the clarification of tearing apart other pieces and use of scraps to make it. Again, incredibly stunning piece! :) THIS is what should be on the Runways in Paris and Milan! ;)
