Reclaimed Raw Silk & Lace; Organic Cotton Lining
Renee, an 18th century styled dress, was custom designed for our client (Renee!) as an homage to the Girl in the Fireplace in the Dr. Who TV series. Renee wanted to wear her gown for her wedding and then for cosplay later. We used five reclaimed dresses in the creation!
- Baque waist & full ballgown skirt
- Square neckline & 3/4 sleeves
- Optional back train with choice of length
- Bodice & skirt separate for ease of wearing
Our Ethical Pledge
The silk we use in our designs is either new hempsilk or reclaimed silk fabrics, repurposed from unwanted dresses which would have eventually ended up in a landfill. We believe that by giving pre-loved dresses a new life and extending their usefulness, we not only honor the initial sacrifice of the silkworms but we honor the laborers who wove the original fabric. We do this by reclaiming and re-using a resource that would otherwise be wasted.
