Lilith et Adalia Spring/Summer 2014 "Petite Antoinette": Debut pt. I



The moment everyone has been waiting for has now arrived! After months of planning, fabric and trim hunting, fabric hauling, sewing mercilessly, photography, and heavy promotion and building of anticipation all over our social media sites (and among friends and family!) we at Lilith et Adalia are finally ready to present to all our fans and followers the completed garment line of Petite Antoinette Spring/Summer 2014! (Read our initial inspiration post here!)

Consisting of twelve stunning dresses, all one-of-a-kind, and handmade over the past few months by your two young designers, Aria and Jennifer. We placed all our hard work and effort into the creation of these pieces. Every dress is fully lined with soft poly taffeta, and fluffed with either honeycomb mesh crinoline or poly organza. Some have zippers, some buttons, some with full elastic. We used a variety of fabrics, such as printed and textured cottons, silk shantung, taffeta, organza, satin, and lightweight silks. Each dress also features a trim in a variety of techniques and types from self fabric to satin and grosgrain ribbon, ribbon rosettes, and lace!
