The making of... Persephone.
'Persephone' was one of my first upcycled creations and set me on my path of upcycled goodness! I created this dress as I had an abundance of vintage slip dresses that I had been collecting for years wanting to do 'something' with them. At the same time, I also had hundreds of fabric remnants, trims and flowers... they naturally all winded up together on a dress!
I had all things ethereal, whimsical and romantic in my head while I draped and pinned pieces of antique lace and pleated pieces of chiffon around my tailors' dummy. Finally finishing it off with sprinkles of fabric flowers.
Here are some work-in-progress photos!
