Hand Embroidered Satin Gown
An ornamental sleeveless gown made in the style of our admired babydoll design with an embellished yoke.
This floor length gown features a hand painted and hand embroidered silk yoke with beaded floral motifs, gilded shell butterflies and three dimensional silk leaves. It is made of sea shells, wooden beads and silk ribbon work and tambour embroidered cupped sequins. The work is all hand stitched and hand embroidered using the haute couture embroidery technique crochet de Luneville.
This ornamental gown could be mistaken for a medieval costume with its gilded beads and the colours of port wine, forrest green and plum purple accentuating the this regal colour palette.
The soft burgundy satin skirt is gathered above the bust line and trimmed with organza ribbon ruffle. It drapes like silk down to the floor length hemline which has been hand stitched and finished with black lace trim.
At the back the yoke is secured with a hook and trimmed and has three burgundy organza ribbon bows down its centre. There is also a burgundy organza bow atop shoulder.
This embellished gown can be worn as a costume or evening dress. It comes with a matching organza ribbon tie to be worn around the waist. There are slits at the side seams of the skirt to slip the tie through so that either the front of the back may be cinched into the waistline for a more dramatic effect.
This haute couture product is all handmade and hand embroidered using the French haute couture embroidery technique crochet de Luneville. The dress is an original hand draped design that has a deep open yoke neck line and gathered skirt at front and back. Truly a one of a kind couture product designed and handmade by Olivia Torma.
