Petal Roses

Petal roses are made by individually cutting each petal.  Although these are beautiful roses, they need a fabric that has some stiffness to it.  Fabrics like Satin and Silk and many of the lining fabrics found in wedding dresses are great fabrics for these roses.  Just about any Neck Tie will also work.  Loose fabrics with lots of drape (like chiffon and organza) and stretchy fabrics (like t-shirt fabrics) do not work well.  For those fabrics, look at our gathered rosette option below.

Rose Bud $25MF petal rose bud NT

A single rose bud that can be displayed in a bud vase or incorporated into another floral element.  Each bud is hand cut and assembled with two leaves.  They are approximately 11″ tall.

Gathered Rosette Corsage $45

NolanE Corsage01web

Gathered rosettes have been used for generations by fashion designers.  Each rosette is made by gathering and twisting strips of fabric to make the appearance of leaves.  Gathered rosettes do best with thin, loose fabrics and stretchy fabrics like chiffon, organza and even t-shirt materials can be used.  Different fabrics give a very different outcome.  We try to use some of the bead work or lace from any wedding dress when making a corsage-.  Neck ties aren’t really good for making a gathered rosette.

Garment Types:

Neck Ties:
We can get up to four petal rose buds or two buds and one full petal rose from a standard neck tie.  Neck ties don’t work well for gathered rosettes.

We can get 30-40 floral elements from a standard wedding dress depending on what we are making.  When using wedding dresses, we try to incorporate any lace or bead work elements, even netting.

Blouse or shirt:
We can get about a dozen floral elements from a blouse or shirt.

Scarf:  We can get 3-6 floral elements from a satin or silk scarf.

Merry Beth Grindahl sent her mother's fur coats to have bears made for her and her siblings. We mixed the two furs, making the bulk of the bears from one and accenting them with the other. Merry Beth was kind enough to send some pictures of the bears when she got them, along with a photo of her mother wearing one of the furs.

Carmen Valdes sent her mother-in-law's fur coat to have bears made for the grandchildren and great-grandchildren. We were able to get five good-size bears from the fur. Dark fur is hard to photograph so this photo really doesn't do them justice. It is funny how, no matter how you try to make each bear the same, each seems to end up with its own personality. ...

Marelne Gruenfelder wanted her wedding dress converted into a couple of heirloom items that she could use and appreciate. We made her a Christmas tree topper Angel and a very unique wall hanging.

We had agreed that the wall hanging would contain applique design but, when I set down to create a design concept, I decided to experiment with fabric sculpture so that some of the flowers would be more 3-D. The floral elements toward the bottom of the hanging came directly from her WD bodice and skirt. The "vine" that winds from the bottom to the top is from the straps of her gown and, of course the roses are made from the gown fabrics. The overall size of this is 18" x 24". It has hoops for putting dowel rods at the top and bottom for hanging, or it could be framed for display as well.

Tyrssa Philpot sent her wedding dress to have a unisex baptism outfit made for her son and future children/grandchildren to wear. Even though the outfit is intended to be unisex, she wanted us to use some of the lace and she wanted it as long as we could get.

Her WD was pretty fitted, which made getting a long gown from it a bit more difficult. We had to work with the seams quite a bit. However, we were able to get a "Bishop" style gown from it and used the lace mesh over the satin. We kept the large collar plain to make it more unisex. In addition to the gown, we made a matching bib, headband, booties and diaper cover as well as a gathered rose corsage.

Thought I'd share this blast from the past. A couple of year ago I made this custom doll to enter into a local competition. The rules of the competition were that we had to sew something using onlly a t-shirt, a piece of lingerie and a pillow case. I literally pulled the threads from the fabric to create her hair and she is stuffed with shredded pieces from the garments. ... See MoreSee Less
