Hand Embroidered Dress
This piece is black with orange and pink, and it is hand stitched and hand embroidered. If you compare it to the lesser expensive pieces, you will see the stitching along the neckline and down the sides is extremely fine on Israel’s work. This dress is very fine embroidery, including the hand-stitching of the actual dress, and the ornamentations. The design work is wide and long,’covering a large amount of fabric. This dress took over one month to make. A truly classic piece that if washed by hand, and cared for, should last for many years to come.
