The Haunted Grove

Posted on

The rabbit is a symbol of fear in many cultures and often symbolizes the presence of spirits as is the case in the scene represented here in this misty grove where disembodied gowns drift among the trees and pearlescent ghosts flit in the upper branches.

The palette of the swing coat is muted grey and black with touches of pearly white. The coat is fully lined in lilac silk taffeta and dark grey pearl buttons march down the front.

The accompanying strapless gown is made from the same lilac silk taffeta overlaid with glazed cotton tulle in silvery grey, giving a lovely muted shimmer. The double overlay of the skirt is left unfinished and is hand distressed to give the ragged effect of a spider’s web.

Included with the ensemble is a set of three magnetic brooches; a skeletal hand, a masquerade mask, and a skull.

This ensemble fits Silkstone, Poppy Parker, and Nu Face
