collection: art moderne
inspiration: Edgar Degas
materials: brocade, english net, point d’esprit
Inspired by Degas’ paintings of ballet dancers, this ballet length dress is both sweet and sassy. It is a two piece affair, the top being a lovely brocade corset based on an authentic Victorian pattern to create that flattering hourglass shape. Pair that with a swishy full handkerchief skirt of english net and point d’esprit, and you won’t be able to resist doing pirouettes for the sheer fun of it!
