Tattered Steampunk Silver and Bronze Formal Dress
A handmade dress created from recycled fabrics
Steampunk inspired found fabric dress. High 'V' neckline and a low 'V' down the back of the dress. Bodice is scrappy stitched in a golden grey striped fabric with silver flower embroidery stitched on top in some places. The skirt is bronzy and golden fabrics tucked and stitched to create a wonderfully volumed skirt. Built in straps and a zipper down the back. Great for a formal event or any day wear!

Edges are usually left raw and will gently fray and soften over time. Each piece is a unique, one of a kind creation made by hand without patterns. All my work is made largely with antique, vintage and reclaimed elements, and as such supply is very limited. These are all one-off pieces, so once this sells, it is very difficult if not impossible to make another. If you are viewing this as a sold or reserved listing and you'd like something like this, please do let me know via the 'contact the seller' link below and I will be glad to help!

Please understand: The artist reserves all reproduction rights. No work may be reproduced in any manner whatsoever with out express, written consent of the artist.

Don't like sometime about the item? Not the right size? Don't worry! Kuriio does custom listings and alterations as well! Convo or email me for more info on any listing!
