This is the kind of design that I am really know for: Nature inspired leaf stitching.  It is my signature.  It is SOOOOO much work.

I don’t know why I keep doing it.  Every leaf is cut by hand and pinned onto each dress to find the right balance and placement.  Then we stitch down the leaves with a safety stitch and afterwards the real creative work starts.  All the veins in each leaf and all the stems are sewn.  They are sewn with a sewing machine yes, but it is all improvised.  Start, stop, turn, swerve, stop, reverse and so on.  It takes a good eye and extreme control over the machine.  It is like drawing with thread.

We have only one of this dress left and it is an XS.
