My Red Valentine

Some women prefer chocolates, some prefer flowers…but Cristina (of http://cristinastaicufashion.blogspot.co.uk/prefers to create a special dress for a romantic Valentine’s dinner. Of course, she wouldn't mind the flowers and the chocolates :)
This dress is made of red silk taffeta with a soft tulle insert at the bodice. The petals are made of the same taffeta, burned around the edges, and hand-stitched on the bodice.  I really like the effect on the neckline area, it looks as the petals are applied on the skin. She also applied a red velvet waistband. It took her about 70 hours to complete the dress, as it involved a lot of handwork.
