Enjoying the last day of our Swedish Summer holiday in the Victorian resort in Hjo, on the shores of Lake Vattern. LA is so very far away!
Today’s activities included a carriage ride, walks in the park, and several twirls back to our villa…how does this suit keep it’s shape? Hem facings and weights, sleeve frames and inner ruffles, and several petticoats. Of course, the breezes off the lake help!
NOTE: The video actually plays with the correct side up.
Silk satin coutil corset with spoon busk and antique lace…wishing I didn’t have to cover it up! Getting ready for a tea at an 1898 Swedish country house today.
Adjusting epaulets and hats turning into sails, Sweden’s Summer is not like what we have in LA…more hairpins, please!
Spotted in a local designer’s window and I had to shut my mouth…I fell in love with all the details and hand finishing. This is such a creative combination of traditional and modern styles! Don’t miss the subtle embroidery on the collar…
