Well, after a nine-hour trip with a few delays, we finally made it to Tombstone. 🙂 After opening the house and getting things packed away somewhat, we had dinner with some good friends followed by after-dinner wine and chocolates back at home (warming up for Valentine’s Day).
So what’s on for the weekend? First, we’re delivering an order to a client:
Springtime in 1880, perfect for the promenade with dyed to match vintage straw chapeau, re-blocked and sewn on our antique straw machines. Remember, YOU wear the hat, hat does NOT wear you- this is no random assembly of “stuff”. This hat, along with our entire collection of hats, are designed with one person in mind: YOU, the client.
Closeup of hand finished bodice with scalloped neckline treatment with vintage embroidered net and antique lace appliques. The hat is subtle, elegant, and understated with each decorative detail positioned for maximum effect.
Seafoam is an excellent springtime color, conjuring gentle ocean breezes and long leisurely days at the seashore. Embroidered cotton and silk with vintage lace overlays, ruching, and ruffles.
Next, we’ll be scouting out locations for an upcoming photo shoot featuring some of our new designs- we can’t reveal the designs at this time but we assure you that as with everything that leaves our atelier, it will be worth the wait.
