Dolce and Gabanna Lace Dress

Dress is cotton lace underlined with cotton tulle. The roses were embroidered on fine weave black wool crepe, cut out, and then appliqued onto the dress. The hem and left sleeve were finished with additional lace applique. I was unable to find suitable lace for this, so motifs of free standing lace were embroidered with matching cotton thread and applied to the hems of the dress and sleeve. The neck and right sleeve were finished with piping made from the straight eyelash lace edge wrapped around mousetail cording. A black silk 2013-03-25 09.53.06
