Lanvin Roses & Other Artificial Flowers by Christina ClaridgeThanks for the great article! This is brilliant information. I started making silk flowers earlier this year and it's hard to find good instructions. As you say, it's a matter of just experimenting with what works. But it's great to be able to see what someone else is doing.
I hope there's a Part 2 in the works! http://yourwardrobeunlockd.com/media/jxtended/img/smilies/default/Wink.png I would love to see more in the future on making flower embellishments as there are so many different types and they enhance a period piece so wonderfully. Also it would be great to see how to finish off the backs of the pieces and how to incorporate them on things like brooches and headpieces.
