Feminine February

Day Six of #VictorianFebruary hosted by @ladyrebeccafashions is: “Feminine”…there’s nothing that describes that to me more than layers of pink, worn inside and out. There’s a perfect shade of pink for everyone, what’s your favorite shade of pink? 🙂



And It’s All Stripes…

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.


And a stripey petticoat in my stripey Victorian house in Tombstone….where even the walls and ceilings are stripey with original beadboard paneling. 😉

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. 🙂



More Corsetry…

Close up of that incredible silk before it leaves my studio. I found this in a small stall in Montmartre, there’s enough for three more corsets…so don’t wait too long to reserve yours… 🎄



And More Corsetry…

The lustre of silk ribbon is luscious, it also tends to not fray when cut on the bias. Ribbon candy loveliness. One of these could be yours…we have a wide variety of fabrics and colors. For more details, please contact us HERE. ♡
