this is spectacular. I love the colors and the landscape detail. but best of all neither the dress nor the painting overshadows the other...they balance so perfectly. I would actually be coaxed out of my jeans and tshirt if I had something like this to wear!

Oh, how gorgeous! The color scheme is just stunning, and the way the background of the painting helps lead the eye back to the top of the dress is really effective.

Hi! (sorry for the orrible english, I hope you understand me)
Hello!
I love this dress! I'm looking for someone who can play but the design on the bottom is so special that no one will ever play, so I want to ask, you would be willing to sell it? And if you're prepared, what do you think will prevail? I am Italian, a bit far away from you but if you're willing to sell it, look for a way to receive it.
Whatever happens, congratulations!

I'm really sorry for not responding to you faster! I do not visit this site often and unfortunately my computer got broken lately!!!
This dress does not belong to me, it belongs to my friend who's name is Svetlana and her site is www.sivanatelier.com. I'm not sure if she is going to sell it.... You can ask her via that site or I can try to paint for you another piece.
Thank you very much for your interest and comment!

That was a competition in Denver, Colorado. My friend found it in "Thread" magazine. I'm not sure if I remember the correct name of magazine. I'm not excited about their competition, but we got some experience, LOL, thank you for your comment

I really love the paint detail on the bottom of the skirt. I love the tone and colors of the scene. You really have a talent painting on fabric. I would love to incorporate this kind of detail to my designs. I love how the scene takes this simple dress and adds such elegance.

Thank you very much for your comment! Unfortunately I do not have much time to answer all the comments. I taught myself to paint on fabrics, so it's not that easy for me to do it, especially when it comes to fixing the paints. In this particular fabric I used some details from Da Vinci's landscape painting and with the flowers I got some impressions from older paintings as well as from old french rugs.
Sorry for my English!

This is very beautiful.
The choice of color really fits the fabric colors and the style of the painting fits the design of the dress and the jacket.
I really love it!
If I wouldn't be that broken, I would ask for a commission to be able to buy such a wonderful outfit. :love:

This is one of the most gorgeous garments I have ever seen. The design of the gown is breathtaking...the way it flows down the body, and the amazing painting does not detract at all from the gown- in fact, it enhances the sweep of the fabric and the overall shape. Fantastic work!
