Purple bohemian fairy dress

Hi! Just letting you know I’m starting to list all the clothing I’ve made over the last year! Three photo-shoots are now in the bag, so I’m ready to go ahead and list everything in the Threads of a Fairytale shop! I’m starting with this purple boho dress that we photographed in Cornwall a couple of weeks ago. It’s approximately 3XL and would fit a few plus sizes from 20 – 24.

You could style it as a fairy dress with a pair of wings and a sprinkle of glitter; or dress it down with trainers and wear to an evening at a friend’s house!

New silk fairy clothing being added for sale!

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.

Fairytale frock coat

Hi! I’m just starting to realise quite how many items of clothing I’ve made this year, and how behind I am on listing all of them in the Threads of a Fairytale Etsy shop! So apologies for the frequent updates at the moment letting you know about the latest additions. Today we have a unisex fairytale frock coat made with beautiful green and purple two-tone brocade satin. If you haven’t got a fairy ball to attend soon, this would actually make a perfect unique jacket to liven up a simple black outfit at a Christmas occasion with bohemian flare. It would be a great conversation starter!

Making a tropical jungle bohemian fairy dress!

Hello! I hope you all had a lovely sunny Easter weekend. I spent it mostly in the garden, but also took a drive to Avebury stone circle when the sun was getting low in the sky and birds all around us were singing very loudly – it was quite magical!

Anyway, I just wanted to tell you that I’ve uploaded a new video to my YouTube channel showing how I made a bohemian fairy dress using tropical leaf print fabric along with Indian cotton and silk chiffon. This dress isn’t in the Threads of a Fairytale Etsy shop yet as I haven’t had chance to do a photo-shoot with my daughter, but I’ll let you know when the listing goes up. 🙂

Have a lovely short week!
