iheartfink Womens Handmade Colorful Art Print Keyhole Dress
This beautiful dress is handmade completely from scratch using fabric I hand painted and hand printed with my original hand drawn artwork. Like all of my garments and accessories, this dress is My original design and one of a kind.
I hand printed off-white cotton/lycra knit fabric using my original strings design and cream and metallic silver ink to make a net-like pattern – then I hand printed over the net pattern using my original large onion design and many colors of ink like dark red, bright blue, copper, black and metallic gold. A beautiful fabric with depth and a fascinating combination of colors and textures that completely covers the fabric and changes throughout the print.
I gave this dress a great shape with a keyhole neckline, short full sleeves, a fitted bodice and waist and flaring generously from the waist to a super wide straight hem that appears much longer on the sides (appears to be scooped because of the width) I finished the hem and finished the rest of the edges with solid black cotton/lycra knit (to created a piping) and used the same solid black fabric to create piping at the waistline.
I made little loops at the top of the keyhole opening so that you may run a ribbon through the loops to make a loose tie or a big bow – I used a small ribbon for the photos but I will include a variety of ribbons to choose from…and you can use other ribbons you have or find at any time)
Last but not least I made several pin-tuck stitches on the front, back, waistline, keyhole opening and sleeves for added signature Fink style structure and beauty.
This is truly a work of art and feel amazing on. Great with flats, heels or boots and layered over long sleeves in cool and cold weather. This dress is really versatile – great for walks in the park, dinner parties, boho weddings, your favorite cafe, gallery openings or having friends over for drinks . . . and Perfect for travel.
You will enjoy wearing this unique work of Wearable Art all of the time!
This is a ONE OF A KIND Garment – There is ONLY ONE Available in SMALL Size

Please keep in mind I used soft cotton/lycra stretch knit fabric and it has a lot of stretch/give which makes sizing a bit flexible and fitted pieces super comfortable.
bust 32 – 34″
waist 25 – 26″
hips are free
approx 41″ from shoulder to hem
I used a turquoise ribbon in this photo but any ribbon works since you simply run the ribbon through the little loops.
