More Parasol Restoration…

Pretty ladies stretching their bias for 24 hours before they are hemmed and finished. I prefer a tighter “drum”…it has to be just tight enough, but not too tight to stress the sticks. Now I can finally take a break!

And Now For Some Parasols…

It’s Parasol Restoring Day in the atelier, these three are special, the wooden ones unscrew and fold for storage or travel, and the gold handled one unhooked and it’s ferrule unscrews and folds down. One will be done in a stripey silk, the gold one will have a lilac silk canopy that shows off the original black lace cover. The fun begins…..NOW!
