L'étoile du matin

I call the dress the Morning star because crystal beads sparkle like morning dew drops on the flowers.

Loro Piana Exodus silk yarn 1500m/100g, 3 strands united = 500m/100g, 1kg, hook 2.25mm + 300 crystal beads.

The dress consists of about 1000 flowers: 100 big, 200 shamrocks, 230 medium, 470 small. All flowers are sewn together. The most boring part in making the dress is hiding ends. These ends are everywhere: beginning if a flower, end of a flower, sewing flowers in a lot of points… They made me mad sometimes. I want to see the result but all that I can see is ends only =)

I dyed crepe silk from @mashe_shop for underdress. I got lilac acid dye that made my silk too red. Then I tried periwinkle. It seemed to me that it made right color. Of course I tried on small pieces with small amount of acid dye. Then I dipped whole piece of silk into periwinkle. It became too blue and did not fit my yarn color. It was a shock. Lucky me I dyed whole piece with light periwinkle color. So next day I decided to mix lilac and periwinkle. It made exactly the color of my yarn. Such a relief!

The Blue Karin dress second edition.

Actually I do not love to make the same dress once again but it was not the case. One day a young lady came with her story that she lost 60 kg of her weight in one year time (from 130 kg to 70) and she wanted to reward her new slim body with the Blue Karin dress. I do understand that she did really hard work and new dress would be fair prize. So I did not refuse and here it is - the Blue Karin dress new edition =) I wish her to stay slim and beautiful and enjoy both new dress and mostly new body!
