Oriental Poppy taught by Arlene Baker


Don’t be shy~ pull out all the stops and make a statement! It’s full-on femininity when you wear this opulent silk flower.

Silk doupioni fabric is wired and shaped with cotton sheeting to form nine double-layered crinkled and curved petals. A handmade bread dough center is surrounded by stamens to make the center of the flower. The stem is wrapped with stem wrapping tissue, a vintage-style finish that resembles the paper-wrapped stems found on millinery flowers from the 1930s. Flower measures about 4 ½ ” diameter.
