Chotronette Inspired Flower Gown

Posted on

Chotronette is a design duo comprised of Silvia Chiteala and Laura Cazacu, based in Iasi, Romania.  Their designs are utterly romantic, featuring tulle, flowers, and lace.

I have been wanting to make one of these gowns for some time.  As always, this is only my interpretation of and homage to the original styles.

Dozens of flowers and leaves are encased in layers of tulle.  The flowers are in shades of purple and lavender, with green ivy and other foliage.  The bodice is princess seamed white silk overlaid with flowers and then covered in tulle.  A hand painted silk ribbon ties at the waist with trailing ribbons.  This is the first version of a dress that will have many variations in color.  Each dress is a one of a kind.  I may use these colors again, but their arrangement and placement will always be unique.

This prototype fashion is snug in the bust and fits Nu Face and Poppy Parker Dolls
