More photos of the Black Rose Jade Dress
The Penelope Red Black Rose Jade Dress was added to the Penelope Red etsy shop today, and as usual, five photo spots is never enough for me, so I wanted to share a few close-ups on this blog.
This dress has been made from a gorgeous rayon (viscose) elastane fabric, in a bright jade green colour. The rayon makes it soft and comfortable to wear- even in the warmer weather, and the elastane helps the fabric to hold its shape, as well as produce the beautiful draped effect of the pleats.
I have over-locked all seams, to make everything nice and neat. The black lace is hand sewn on to each dress- this is why you can see small black stitching on the wrong side of the garment (pictured in this photo above).
The pleats accentuate the waist, while also creating volume for the hem, and an illusion of length as the pleats create vertical lines from your waist down.
One of the best parts about this design, is that it is so comfortable- I can not stress it enough! The fabric is so soft and floaty. Take a look at the video below to see how the hem flows and twirls!
The only difference between the back and front is the back has a centre back seam. I still have the same pleating on the back as well as the front, and the same fullness at the hem.
