Exclusive collection, OOAK hand painted, embroidered & beaded girls 100% cotton dress age 8

Regular price £82.00 Sale

This is  totally unique, it will never ever be repeated,  why because this is made from hand dyed, batik, cotton fabric, painted with fabric dyes, outlined with wax, washed, ironed to de wax it then washed again, then the fun begins with free motion embroidery and hand beading... the fabric alone has taken several days to complete from the application of the wax  resist to the sewing of the actual dress.. this is an actual labour of love and the cost nowhere near reflects the hours or effort  put into this item.

Big fantasy flowers in shades of purples and pinks have sunny yellow centers and a leafy green background, the flowers have been embroidered around with burgundy, purple and magenta threads, yellow flower sequins add highlight and detail to the flowers, dye pens have also been used to embellish the flowers further, then the whole background has been embellished with 100's of sequins stacked to give a shimmery raised effect to the fabric.

100% cotton. all new fabrics, findings etc.

This one off fabric panel has been made into a gorgeous summer dress to fit a girl up to the age of 9. the chest measures 26.5 inches or 68cm the length nape ( back of neck) to the hem line is 30 inches or 77cm this should reach to well below the knee, mid calf range. a single button to the back is the secure fastening.

The boring bits...

The photographs are un touched taken in natural daylight to try give an accurate representation of the colours.

Hand wash is highly recommended as it is expected that the dyes will release and will continue to do so over a number of washes.... line dry because of the sequins, beads etc. and iron to the inside only, taking care to avoid the embellishments...
