Quiet breakfast in the modern world, turning the clock back 120 years tomorrow, so I’m savoring this moment! I’m dreading all the work that I need to finish this week at No. 11, but old houses need love, too.
Some formal images taken in our Tombstone parlor, just before we left for the Courthouse. The bride is wearing a brocade gown in the mid 1870s style, with silk pleating and soft cotton netted ruffles with a corseted bodice in a ballgown style.
This gown has a detachable train, so she can wear it later for a Victorian Ball as a formal gown.
The bodice and skirt front had vintage lace applique and bobbinette (netted) ruffles all pinked with my antique tools and hand finished.
And the payoff… 🙂
We fell in love with Martin as well…now they’re the prettiest couple in the West. 🙂
Two things I can’t resist…froufrou and a shoe sale! My new “Tissots” combine both of those. Don’t forget to check out the American Duchess shoe sale going on this month, before they’re all gone. This model is perfect for brides, church, anything that requires a low heel…shoe bows are clip-ons, Mom! 🙂
