The Edwardian Dress


For the Wallington exhibition I wanted to create, for my own satisfaction, a centrepiece of my work.
I wanted something that I would love making, that would stand out and that I could utilise in future teaching and lecturing.

The theme and inspiration was along the lines of “WW1, the end of the Belle Epoque era, death and destruction, poppies and pacifism (of the house owner)"

So the only way to go was to start with red.
And crows.

And a corset top.

And a bustle.

Get the idea?
