I designed and handmade this embroidered Capelet for my very special friend Alice on her Wedding day this September, made of light periwinkle blue crepe with embroidery inspired by the flowers included in the bouquet and the brides love of bees, beetles and bright colors. The label inside is a small injoke for the bridal party and also the wedding hashtag #fishneedsbicycle. I am very very proud of this piece and looking forward to making more in the future, the text below the images is taken from my etsy page through which a commission can be placed, or alternatively through the contact page on this website.
"Each Capelet is made to order and includes a one on one design consultation with the Embroiderer to discuss the colour of the fabric and the design and colors of the embroidery (floral/romantic symbols/lace style/abstract etcetera.) Making this item completely unique to you.
Each Capelet takes roughly one month to make and is entirely made by hand, no machine embroidery or applique used and you can see this care and time taken in the final piece itself.
As they are made upon commission the Capelet pattern can be re-sized to fit measurements that are sent during the design consultation process. If you live in or are able to visit London, England then a fitting can be held at your convenience."
