Pink and Purple

A bright and happy custom-made dress for a South Carolinian mother-of-the-bride (I don't wear pink very often, but my six-year-old inner princess has just died and gone to heaven)!

This customer wanted a hot pink dress similar in styling to my Anemone Dress, but with several modifications: a lower neckline, an included self-crinoline, and a pleated sash with three contrasting kanzashi-style folded silk flowers.

Everyone in the wedding party and family were told to wear bright colors. I can only imagine what a dazzling party it is going to be - like flowers everywhere!

(These flowers are so much fun to make, especially if you're using a nice thin silk that finger-creases well. These are three variations I took off the tutorial kindly put up by my friend Deborah of BeeHoney Designs.)
