My first resort wear inspired couture top.
I made this in the middle of 2017 and it sold later that year to a lady in Texas USA. She said she can't wait to wear it when the weather warms up.
It's a seaside inspired cotton top designed in the style of a babydoll. The yoke is all hand stitched with crystals, silk ribbon, wooden beads, sea shells, sequins and metallic thread. The base is hand painted silk organza.
I really enjoyed making this. I had no awareness of time, just the joy of making and letting my creativity guide me. It's times like those when you can make the most inspired beautiful works of art. This piece has inspired me to make a resort wear collection. Nothing grand, just a few more tops like this with coordinating pants in beautiful silk/cotton voiles.

Hope you'll join me on my couture journey x
