Dress For A “Mid-Summer’s Night Dream” – Art Dress

I’ve made a dress with a similar title before but, this one is a slightly bigger, has a different underskirt and more beading.

Dress For A "Mid-Summer's Night Dream"

Now I think about it, this dress is similar mostly due to the colour.

Dress For A "Mid-Summer's Night Dream"

She is 18cm long, 23cm wide. Tailored and stitched together from old pleated book pages, and fabric remnants. Differing colored decorative glass and enameled beads glint and sparkle at the waist and bodice. A dreamy dress ready for a moon lit midnight ball.

So, here is something I don’t do often – bright colours.  The latest addition.  I couldn’t resist this colour as, when I was young, it was my favourite colour in the Crayola Crayon box.

Assemblage – Fuchsia

Assemblage - Fuchsia

Some time ago, you may have seen my post about it, I ordered some sari fabric remnants.  Well, at first they didn’t arrive and the seller made enquiries with her postal service.  With no sign of the parcel of sari material, the seller apologised and gave me full refund.  That was way back at the begining of March.  But guess what? The material turned up last week!  I’ve been in touch with the seller and she would only accept the cost of the material, declining the postage, and apologising again for the postal delay( poor girl, it wasn’t her fault!).  Anyway the sellers name is Fabricana, she sells on Etsy(here is the link  – Fabricna), she has lots of lovely material and she is lovely person to do business with.

What is sari material.  Visit the Wikipedia page to find out more – Sari on Wikipedia.

A second beaded bodice dress.  Not as big as the first but only a couple of centimeters shorter, the bodice is made from old pieces of cotton, paper and small shell like beads, tailored and stitched together. The skirt is stitched together from old book pages, fabric which has been rouched together and decorated with glass beads. There is a lot of detail on the bodice with extra bits of fabric and stitching. Delicate but strongly and carefully made.  Available for purchase in our Etsy store
