There’s always one isn’t there? I came here to tell you that all the new silk fairy clothing is now listed on Etsy, but then I went and found a silk jade green cami top that was hiding when we did the photo shoot for the rest of the collection! So, all the skirts and tops are now listed apart from that one top!!
Edit: and I’ve just sold the jade green skirt and a cream silk cami top, so they aren’t now listed either!
There are two sets of purple silk tops and skirts; a creamy beige skirt, a pinky grey skirt, a mustard yellow top and skirt, a cream top and skirt, a pale pink skirt and a bright pink skirt. If you’d like to see them, please take a look at the Fairytale collection.
Last Friday, my eldest daughter, Rain, and I went round the corner to a lovely empty field along with a bag of silk flower fairy clothing, some faux flowers and some handmade hair garlands. I took hundreds of photos and have begun to list the items into the Threads of a Fairytale Etsy shop. So far I have added a purple silk top and a matching fairy skirt, but still to come are a matching sunflower yellow set; a cream top; a rose pink skirt; a delicate turquoise green skirt; a bright pink skirt, and a matching set in ivory. We had lots of fun recreating the poses of the flower fairies by Cicely Mary Barker!
I prefer not to list everything at once so that throughout the pages of my shop, you get to see a variety of styles of fairytale clothing because most people will see the clothing in order of being posted. So I’ll also be adding other items that are waiting to be listed and I have a very special dress coming soon!
If you would like to see all the silk fairy clothing, please go straight to the ‘Fairytale and Cosplay‘ section of my shop. There are also four items there that I modelled in magical woodland in Cornwall last summer. They’re perfect for dressing up in if you’re looking for an adult fairy costume, but worn as separates the tops and skirts can be worn with jeans or t-shirts for a more casual bohemian style.
Almost all these tops and skirts were dyed by me using natural materials. If you’d like to see the process, I made a video of all my experiments with natural dyes on silk and cotton. As soon as the clothing is all listed on Etsy, I’ll be showing a video of me making them all on my YouTube channel, if you’d like to keep a look out for that too.
In the mean time, stay safe and well.
I loved experimenting with a variety of natural dyes in the summer, and one that was very successful was logwood chips – they produced this gorgeous shade of purple on the pure silk I used to make this fairy outfit. There is more of a toned down version on the cotton that lines the pixie skirt.
I decided to split the outfit into two listings in case you would rather wear the top or the skirt in a more casual fairytale manner, rather than a complete adult fairy costume. The silk cami top, for example, would look great at a Christmas party worn with smart black trousers; or with jeans at a summer music festival. The purple silk skirt would look lovely with a simple grey t-shirt or a chunky knit jumper worn with leggings underneath and boots.
Or, of course wear the top and skirt together for a pretty and unique fairy outfit that would look amazing at a special fairytale event, or even an ordinary muggle party! Here is the Threads of a Fairytale Etsy listing for the pure silk cami top; and here is the listing for the pixie hem skirt.
