GirlOnAVine 's Thoughts:

Thee most gorgeous little black dress ever! Stevie Nicks inspired loveliness using a hand beaded black velvet burnout shawl, embroidered mesh top bodice,scrumptious scalloped lace on hemline, finished off with beaded tassels! The bodice is cut tank style, very low on sides and is slightly sheer so you will need to wear a slip of sorts (shown with slip, not included). The skirt/dress portion is cut in a square for an amazing drape! One size fits most. Shown on a sz 2 model. Shortest length at center front is approximately 38".

The velvet burnout process, or “Dévoré” as it is also referred, is achieved by applying an acid to a natural, protein fiber (silk) and natural non-protein fiber (rayon). The acid “burns out” the non-protein fiber leaving only the sheer woven silk and hence, creating elaborate and intricate designs. This fabrics is of the highest quality, and is very expensive to manufacture.
The art deco designs on the shawls used to make these beauties are based on 1920s prints and give an amazing stained glass glow when backlit. The silk part of the fabric becomes very sheer, almost transparent. Often referred to as “wearable art”, I promise that once you lay your hands on one of these, you will not ever want to take it off.

wow. you are most definitely right. That is a beautiful little black dress. I adore the designs on it, they really complete the dress. I love how your accessories don't take away from the dress but really compliment it. Great job.
