Original Rose Cascade Belle ballgown - BatB by giusynuno Original Rose Cascade Belle ballgown - BatB by giusynuno
Aaaaaand my big project for this year is finally ready:party:
I've first designed this original Belle ballgown (yes, another one xD) back in late May and it took quite a bit of time to gather the materials AND find the time to make all the roses...but it was worth it!! I'm really happy with the result:heart::heart: 

Sooo first of all, my original idea was to make heart shapes thoughout the skirt (you can see the original design here if you have instagram but it should open in a browser too -> www.instagram.com/p/BGtS_90GXV… ), but the reality was awful and I reinvented the train to be a cascade of roses:heart: I do like it better in the end, even if the original idea was super cute on paper XD I wanted to be surrounded by roses and I think the result is quite rose-full XD

I hand made all the 500+ roses scattered around using two-toned satin ribbon in 5, 3 and 2cm heights to make them all different :D it took exactly 63 days to complete them, which means most of my stay in HK plus 23 hours travelling back to Italy. Haha. I made a totale of 752 of them and I have around 200 left for a new project :) It was good to have some crafting to do at the hotel during evenings! XD
HORROR STORY. So, While in HK I found this PERFECT pale gold shangtung silk and after double checking that it was 150cm tall I got it for this project. Since the rolls were all gathered together in a box I didn't really supervise while the guy got mine and cut it (especially because I never had problems with them), so it was only once back in Italy and ready to cut that I noticed that my fabric 
was
110cm tall.
PANIC. As in, REAL panic. It was totally not tall enough to make the train, so after a looong night of patterning and fabric matching I could save around 95cm of it to reconstruct the train...all the matching lines have been luckly covered by the roses, but it was a crazy job ( ;__; ) never again in my life XXD 
Always remember to double check your fabrics when buying them! XD

The skirt is a full circle with a bias train, and it's completely hemmed with a lace and beads border in a slightly darker shade than the fabric. The lower part of the skirt is decorated with Jonquil 213 Swarovski crystals, while the upper part has some rose petals topped with Light Siam AB 227 Swarovskis :)
All the roses on the skirt are handmade and hand stitched on one by one :dead:

The corset is a longline cut in 12 panels with elastic base sleeves and decorated with handmade roses, all hand stitched on; all the roses are  topped with Light Siam AB Swarovskis. The roses on the sleeves are layered with fabric red petals that are sold by meter, one of the nicest findings of the last period! XD 
I also made a small "belt" of crystals at waist level with Dark Siam and Smoked Topaz 220 Swarovskis to give it all a bit more sparkle :)
I love sparkle.

The choker is made of the same lace as the trim on the skirt and the corset and has a single rose petal pendant decorated with Dark Siam 308 Swarovskis. I've always like the idea of "the last petal" and I'm happy I could finally include it in one of my designs:heart:

I'm really, really happy with how this turned out, even if it's really heavy XXDD it's a bit of a pain to walk in it, but I'm still so happy XD

This dress is so gorgeous! Like, I love all the dresses that you had made and showed so far but this one take them all. All those roses, how the two color work well together, all the little touches... It just wow...

If it's OK with you, do you mind if I get some art of one of my characters in your gorgeous outfit...? I will understand if you said no cause I wouldn't want anyone else, real or fake, to be wearing this dress. ^_^;

Holy -... That is gorgeous! O.O

You most have copious amounts of patience! O.O

I think I like the resulting design better than the hearts. The hearts would have been cool, but the way you made it, cascading roses down the train, it's just so dream like :D

And such amazing roses, too. So much detail!

Welp. I guess, there's nothing for it. I'll have to follow you.

Oh my thank you so much!!!! I think, too, that the cascade train is a much better solution...I'm still a bit baffled, though, about how much a 2D design can totally not work in 3D XXXXDDD
Thank you so much for watching, by the way!!!! I'm really happy you appreciate my works :heart:
