Details

Torn pieces of cotton, satin, silk, polyester, net, and lace are collaged and captured under a jungle of stitches then fall in loose tiers into the skirt.The front bodice has an overlay of vintage battenburg lace and beaded goldwork salvaged from a salwar kameez edges the skirt tiers. Mis-matched back zipper to close.

100% upcycled material

Bust: 34 - 36 inches (86.36 - 91.44cm)
Waist: 25 - 27 Inches (68.58 - 68.58cm)
Hips: 34 - 36 Inches (86.36 - 91.44cm)
Length: 32 - 44 inches (81.28 - 111.76cm)

CARE: Dryclean

My designs are created from reclaimed materials and are often married together with abundant layers of visible stitching. Imperfections are celebrated and combined with artful tattering and asymetry to enhance the personality of each piece. Edges are usually left raw and will gently fray and soften over time. Each piece is a unique, one of a kind creation made spontaneously by hand without patterns.

"serendipity" collection
--------------------------------
Perhaps better defined as wearable art than items of clothing, designs from the serendipity line are often whimsical and fanciful but never ordinary! They include asymmetry, visible stitches, hand stitching and raw edges.

Serendipity: 1. a "happy accident" or "pleasant surprise"; 2. the accident of finding something good or useful while not specifically searching for it.

This stunning dress is another pondhopper masterpiece! The dress has such gorgeous motion to it even when stationary because of the cut of the piece and the placement and design of the watercolor print. The cascading flow of the dress is enhanced by a spin or other human movement. This dress is meant for dancing! The jeweled neckline finishes the piece in bedecked beauty and glamour.

This piece is incredibly comfortable, beautiful, and such fun to wear! The dress has so much to love: sequins, ruffles, leopard print, mandala print, a floral motif panel, and an interesting asymmetrical hemline. Perfect in all ways!

Each Pondhopper creation is unique, special, and magical in some way. So much attention is paid to each tiny detail of the piece to create a garment of the utmost aesthetic beauty. I love the cream-colored lace with black lace embellishments of this dress, as well as the lovely way it drapes in the back while accentuating feminine curves in the front. Sheer perfection!

This is another unique work of artistic beauty! Lorraine has a gift for finding formerly loved treasures and breathing new life into them. She creates pure textile magic, and this gorgeous piece is no exception. The design elements and beautiful reclaimed materials combine into an elegant, glamorous, visually stunning dress.

Initially, my husband wondered about my purchase of TWO Pondhopper lace items--a hooded top and this bolero/cropped cardigan--until he saw how completely different the pieces are. Despite being constructed from similar materials, the works are distinctly unique, with their own individual personalities and voices. Like all Pondhopper creations, this cardigan is enchanting, something outside the norm, completely extraordinary. It is a joy to wear, as is every Pondhopper piece. I am always happy when I am attired in such breathtaking beauty.

I now have three pieces of wearable art from Lorraine at The Pondhopper, and I marvel at the artistry and inspiration at the heart of each garment. Every time I wear one of the pieces, I am delighted by some intentional flourish or combination of reclaimed elements that I hadn't fully noted during the last wearing of the item. This captivating lace top combines skull lace, floral lace, black sequins, black velvet, and faux gemstone flowers, all in a flattering cut. Skulls, flowers, lace, sequins, and velvet: What could be better?

I love everything about this collar, cuffs, bow tie set, and so does my dog, Bodhi, who pranced about the house showing the other dogs his special attire. My female dog wants to know why she didn't have something special to try on, and she gave me the grumpiest look ever over the whole "fancy dress for boy dog situation." I'll be scouring the Pondhopper shop for female dog accoutrements. All of the items in this tuxedo-like ensemble are designed to be fabulously functional and dog-comfortable while simultaneously visually stunning. Equally wonderful is the fact that Lorraine, the genius artist/designer/seamstress/person extraordinaire who is the actual pond hopper, donated the entire proceeds of this purchase to the rescue organization from whom I adopted my dogs. How amazing is that?

It's a fascinator that's different and looks lovely on. Quite wearable. What sold me on it was the picture/advert of it worn by a redhead. I am one as well, and love how it looks!
