This is something I was working on during my free time.
The burnt edge: I had to use one hand using a lighter to burn it and the other hand holding a spray bottle full of water to spray on the fire (the smell of it, stinks).
All the flowers & leaves are also handmade, I used every techniques I know to make a bunch of them haha.
I was inspired by Burzum’s Fallen album cover that I stumbled upon a while ago.
After doing some research, it turns out that is a part of French painter William-Adolphe Bouguereau’s painting “Elegy”. But anyway, the part that inspired me was the flowers detail, I just love how they look like they’re about to fall down half hanging.
I’ve always wanted to make a dress with music notes of it, so I used a fabric pen to write them down onto the fabric. And those are not random notes, that’s the music sheet of Yiruma’s River Flows In You, my favourite piece of music.
I’m pretty happy with the result, although it’s a bit of mix of everything, but I consider this a successful “practice”. I got to experience and do a little bit of this and that and try many different things making the dress. I hope you enjoy this and continue to look forward to my next work :)
