I have always been a fan of Degas’ drawings and paintings of ballet dancers. I love the softness of the skirts and my choice of lace with the 3D butterflies seemed a natural choice. Alicia’s bodice was made from an old skirt I had dip dyed, I reused the fabric to create a bodice reminiscent of ballet bodices with its high points over the bust and low down the centre front. No dress of my design would be complete without a fun petticoat, pink with a polka dot edge. The cape was made for another dress using the same lace but compliments Alicia and available to buy with the dress or individually.
