snapdragon by Kar-tastic snapdragon by Kar-tastic
for :iconcjrogers1993: 's project designer

Numba 5:Garden Party. We were told this challenge to design a dress based on a flower, i chose the snapdragon. [link]

The snapdragon - to me - is not the most serious of the flowers, it's too frilly to be completely elegant like an orchid, and it's too simple to be as extravagant as a peony; so what i went for in this dress was the essence of this flower would be: playful, confident, and of course fabulous.

Fabrics/materials - hand dyed china silk going from white to orange to pink-red ( dress body )
- pink-red silk organza and lightweight wire( shoulder-bust ruffle )
- silver botanically correct interlocking snapdragon leaf bracelette
-black t-strap pumps with a peep-toe and platform

Model - Tyler (what a cutie! )

Description: ok, there are only a few things to clear up (just in case) first, the hem of the dress has two layers of small ruffles. the giant ruffles are double-layer organza with the wire stitched into the top edge to keep the ruffle shape

PLEASE tell me what you think of it, thank you

Omg there were so many amazing(!) dresses for this challenges.

Yours is so delightful and carefree. It really is reminiscent of a snapdragon, too.
