happy to introduce this lovely creature,
a special custom dress I made, for a real life fairy named Jessie.
this piece has been many months in the making, and I was
so grateful there was no hard deadline for it’s finish date.
it seemed to want to grow slowly & quite often refused to be rushed!
such a lush array of greens went into this..
in the beginning I actually felt kind of high from staring at
the vivid chartreuse tones for hours.. they are truly transfixing~
all the shiny areas of the bodice are dreamy vintage silk.
there was a wool allergy to consider so I found a great
acrylic scarf to give that organic mossy element
that usually comes from tattered sweaters.
I was a bit sad that this doesn’t fit any of my forms or friends,
because I really wanted to see & photograph it filled out..
we’ll all just have to wait to see til it’s new lady sends some photos
Jessie is an actress and fairy, it will be so cool to see how she works
this piece into her world. I’m excited :) you can check out her
