a custom Rose dress


finally finished with this lovely dress..
for one reason or another it’s been a year or more in the making.

it’s a custom creation for Valerie Mallory, a really amazing local artist.
she works with a lot of foliage & flowers in her sculptures.


she asked me to sew in these fossilized roses, which was challenging..
but what a beautiful effect they have.


the dress took me by surprise once completed..
I see an elegant old-world ballerina wearing it in my mind.
it feels very magikal & folkloric.. & like there’s something it’s meant to do.


& now.. onward! <3s
