Silk rose detail by fairyfrog Silk rose detail by fairyfrog
Detail from the victorian red silk wedding dress I got posted here, on the side of the apron overskirt.

I wish I had this photo in colour as well.

I made them by either gathering and rolling folded fabric strips for the bigger roses, to folding squares to get the leaf.
I then placed them out to hide the frayed bases and sewed them onto the dress. What you are looking at is about 12 separate parts.

Here you go! This is the technique I used.

You will have to experiment a little with length of strip versus pulling of the thread.

Pull the thread a lot on a long strip you get a very gathered "full bloom" rose, pulling it very little on a small strip you get a bud.

Good luck!
