Botanical Dress and Necklace for the Holidays

When Monica Mayer, owner of Divine Designs Bridal Boutique, commented a week ago that she would like a botanical dress for the window in her shop, I immediately contacted her.

Making a dress had been on my wish list for quite a while and this was the perfect opportunity to figure out the mechanics. I went to the shop and came home with the mannequin last Friday.

My friend Elizabeth, owner of Rose Hill Flower Farm, brought a variety of evergreens and some other treasures and I found lots of different mini cones and other woodland elements in the studio. Tiny succulents, myrtle and pepper berries added seasonal colors. Never have I used as many tubes of oasis glue for one project!

Thank you so much for capturing these images Ted Mishima!
