Couture tailored blouse in fine ivory tulle. Embroidered with tiny sunflowers (or daisys), coloured in shades of pale yellow through to ochre.
Fitted shape with pleated front and bishop sleeves gathered into buttoned cuffs.
A deep gathered ruffle sits around the neck, extending over edge of shoulders.
Buttons all way down centre front with little silk covered buttons.
The high buttoned neck and cuffs are constructed from flower and foliage embroidered cotton lace, hand coloured to tone with the overall look.
Antique embroidered tulle is used to make the sleeve inset detail at bicep, and to edge the cuffs and either side of the front button plackets.
This antique tulle has little 3D flowers hand tinted to match the flowers on the main fabric.
The blouse is long enough to tuck securely into a skirt or trouser waistband.
The shirt is designed to be worn fitted but not tight....
*Please note that the tulle has a sheer quality, so you would need to wear a nude or same colour camisole/bustier under your shirt
This is a really beautiful design, and a future heirloom piece. It was made specifically for a Van Gogh inspired look (hence the sunflowers) and has just been used for a couple of photo shoots. It is in immaculate clean condition, with no marks as far as I can see , . This is one of the studio samples, which occasionally get sold off at a fraction of the original cost (60-75% reduction) at intervals to make way for fabulous new creations. (Unfortunately these are all generally in the smaller sizes, UK6-10)
Owing to the unique custom made nature of these samples I don't offer returns, so please be sure to check the measurements below before buying. These are the measurements of the standard UK size 8 mannequin on which the dress is shown in the last image, with any excess room indicated.
We do ship internationally, and I have included some figures for a few of the more popular destinations, but if your country is not listed please get in touch for an accurate shipping quote before completing checkout.
