I've made miniature dresses as gifts for my friends as little tokens. I've given them to remind someone to hold on to hope, to celebrate someone's birthday, and to bring a moment of joy. Now, I've made them specifically to give as a bridal shower or wedding gift.
These one-of-a-kind dresses have been made specifically to give to someone in your life who is about to get married.
The bodice is constructed with carefully chosen wording (taken from a wedding ceremony) with one line prominent: "Knowing that day would lead to this one." The skirt is made from tulle and silk rose petals and decorated with miniature pearls. Each comes with its own custom hanger.
This other design also lends itself to a beautiful wedding or bridal gift. This particular one-of-a-kind dress is made from an Edna St. Vincent Millay poem.
It has a tulle and silk petal skirt with fairy feather wings and comes with its own handcrafted hanger. I can also make these designs from the Kahil Gibran's classic poems and writing.
I listen to music and almost become meditative when I make these. If you are interested in one for yourself or a friend, please contact me. I can ship them.
