Part of our recent collection inspired by the classic tale “Carmilla” (as released by the House of Pomegranates Press and illustrated by Taeden Hall).
The second design in our mini collection to honour the story is our “Carmilla” dress.
This dress is every bit as dark and mysterious as the vampire girl it is named for. It’s inspired by the deepest shadows, the velvet breath of a predator on one’s throat.
Our “Carmilla” dress has a short cotton velvet bodice. The fabric feels luscious and not at all costumey (unlike high pile or stretch velvet). With a black cotton yoke with high Victorian style collar and detachable bow. The skirt features rows of ruffles.
It matches our “Mircalla” capelet perfectly, for an easy vampire-inspired ensemble.
