PETITES FLEURS
Variation Around The Kaftan .
Hand-stitched
Reversible
2 models in 1
+
Foral Brooch





Length : approx 50"







WORK IN PROGRESS
At the start :


I love green . Spring in the air !


These motifs are exquisite ( much more in reality than in these pictures ! )
An Art Nouveau feeling .


I used 3 vintage recycled silk and cotton for this kaftan.
The cotton is printed with small flowers ( petites fleurs ) .
It is very light , transparent .
The model is reversible .
2 models in 1
Hand-stitched


The kaftan will be ornate by a maxi brooch made with wonderful vintage flower and acorns from 1940s.
They are in velvet and satin.
On the pictures , they are just pinned on the caftan .





The Kaftan will be closed on the front with 2 long ribbons made in the same fabrics i used .

Time to make the brooch with the acorns and the flower :










Thank you for your visit and interest in my work
