I’m having so much fun replicating this vintage Dior dress in 1/6 scale, I can’t seem to stop! This time I used a dupioni silk that was named dusty lavender, but it looks more pinky mauve to me. Now available in my Etsy shop.
I found this vintage hand-embroidered a while ago and fell in love with the soft color palette. Then I ran across a lovely peach linen hankie that matched perfectly. So after much internal debate, I decided a bubble skirt would best show off the circular design of the embroidery. The plain color bodice draws out the peach embroidery on the flowers. A rhinestone brooch and ultrasuede belt with rhinestone buckle complete the look. Available now in my Etsy shop.
