This is lovely! I always wanted to do something similar with flower petals, the older darker petals toward the bottom, progressively brightening at the top. I never had the nerve to try (flower petals are much harder to get large amounts of then leaves...) But now I think I might try some organic pieces as well. Thank you! :D
Flower petals are also much more fugitive than leaves - you'd have to select varieties that didn't wilt as quickly, and even then you would probably need to create and photograph in the same day.
You could do artificial flower petals - either ribbon-flower style or out of fabric. There are special irons (and books of instructions) for shaping fabric into realistic petal and leaf shapes.
This is just... Gorgeous!
I am speechless!!!!!
This is just beautiful!
ooh, thank you guys - so glad you like it! also an update, almost a month after making it, the skirt still looks wearable, no disintegration perceived, i suppose the cooler temperatures keep it preserved:-)
Stunning! Thank you so much for sharing such a beautiful ensemble.
I make Venetian Carnevalcostume s, this would fit perfektly. And wearing corset on top was on vogue this year in Venice. You ever thought of participating?
