In ALL POSTS, ART On October 24, 2013 The Red Dress When Aleyna told me she needed a shoot, I was totally pumped! I’d been looking for a reason to make a red dress and this was it.

PLEASE, tell me how you put the flowers over the shoulder? this is STUNNING!!!January 9, 2016 at 8:06 pm
Sure! I start by laying a piece of felt over the shoulder of one of my dress forms and then cut it to the size and shape I’m looking for. I pin it to the mannequin and then pin flowers to the felt, adjusting as I go. Once I’m happy with how it looks, I glue the flowers in place (I use hot glue). I put a thick layer of paper between the felt and the dress form just to make sure the glue doesn’t seep through and glue everything to the mannequin.
On the day of the shoot, the piece usually stays in place just on its own but sometimes I’ll clip or pin it onto the dress. The best thing is you can use these pieces on the shoulder, at the waist, in the hair, or even as a prop. 🙂January 9, 2016 at 8:36 pm
