Hand Embroidered Cotton Babydoll
A floral inspired cotton babydoll with hand painted and hand embroidered silk yoke. All hand stitched and hand embroidered using a haute couture embroidery technique.
One of a kind hand embroidered cotton babydoll top with a hand painted and hand embroidered silk yoke inspired by colourful pansies and vintage babydolls and bows of 1960's fashion.
This delightful babydoll top is colourful, bright and cheerful and intended for the playful and loveable at heart! It's a fancy frivolous take on the vintage babydoll of the 1960's when flower power took hold and bows were a popular feature in fashionable dress from the boudoir to the most elegant evening dress.
This frivolous hand embroidered babydoll is designed to inspire a playful and fancy free attitude. The yoke is hand painted silk with chain stitched floral motifs in a palette of spring colours from daffodil yellow to baby blue, violet to fuscia pink.
There are two yellow silk pansies with purple bows embellished with purple seed beads and orange Swarovski crystals.
Between the pansies are orange and yellow chain stitched floral motifs embellished with organza bows in bright orange and fluorescent purple. At their centre are Swarovski crystals surrounded by seed beads.
Bursts of starlight appear in the form of crystal stars that fill the background surrounding the motifs.
On the back of the yoke there are two yellow organza bows, one at the top of the opening which is secured with a hook, the other at base.
The front yoke is trimmed with three tiered ruffle made of pale turquoise organza ribbon. The skirt is gathered at the base of the yoke and has a hand stitched hem.
This haute couture product is all handmade and hand embroidered using the French haute couture embroidery technique crochet de Luneville. Truly a one of a kind couture product designed by Olivia Torma. This beautiful sleeveless cotton babydoll is a hand draped design that has a deep open yoke line and gathered skirt at front and back.
