Beautiful fairy dress, handmade to order.

NB I have availability to work with you straight away, but please note that I won't be available for two weeks in the middle of May and for a week at the end of June.

You meet all your friends in a woodland clearing and dance round a bonfire to the sound of a violin and rustling leaves...

Ideas: These dresses would look lovely for bridesmaids at a woodland wedding, or add a pair of wings and a sprinkling of glitter for a fairy costume. Perfect for festivals such as Burning Man or Glastonbury.

Materials: I use a patchwork of a variety of fabrics for the bodice part of the dress for depth of texture and interest. The neckline is often adorned with tattered ruffles and frills with added beads hand-sewn for extra detail. The skirt part will also have mixed materials fluttering at the hem. The actual fabric depends on what I have available, but will often be pure silk, silk blends, chiffon and cotton and may have additional embellishments such as sequins, beading and embroidery.
The dress laces up at the back and is tied at the back of the waist with drawstring.

Colours / colors: This dress is made from recycling Indian salwar, kameez and saris and therefore the colours I have available are usually bright and strong. I have put a list of colours I have for you to choose from, but if you are looking for something different, or a particular shade, please contact me before ordering so I can be sure I have your preference.
I am happy to do a mix of colours; for example, the orange dress pictured has touches of green as well; or I could do a bigger mix, such as Autumn colours and use reds, oranges, brown and dark green all together. Just let me know!

Measurements: Please let me know your bust, waist and hips measurements and also the length from the top of your shoulder to your knee. Thank you! (The design of this dress means that it will fit 1-2” / 2-5cm different either way.)

Timing: Please allow 2-3 weeks for me to make your dress.

Details: This listing is for the basic design of dress pictured: a patchwork bodice with shoulder straps and lacing up at the back; a gap underneath with a drawstring to the waist of the skirt part, which is approximately knee length. However, the exact design is unique to every dress, so there will be variations to the placing of embellishments, frills, ruffles etc. Please see the different dresses I have as examples in the pictures.
