It’s Day 1 of #VictorianFebruary hosted by @ladyrebeccafashions and today the theme is “Stripes”! As a designer, I love stripes…working with them, matching them, creating them with lace or ribbon…stripes are a perfect Victorian era motif! 🙂
I couldn’t resist capturing all these lace stripes in this silk petticoat ruffle.
One of my favorite silk gowns where I used dyed to match silk ribbons to create stripes in the silk organza knife pleating…it’s a waterfall of absinthey stripes. Some day, we’ll have Victorian balls again, right? I remain hopeful. 🙂
Velvet ribbon stripes on net with striped matte brocade for one of my favorite 1870s styled gowns. 🙂
