Taking a morning twirl, shaking off winter, and finishing up some new Lily Absinthe gowns for Spring…taking bookings for Fall and Winter commissions. ♡
Today, just for something different, here’s some artwork from circa 1889 that features fashion and the Eiffel Tower. 🙂
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. 🙂
