Announcing Atelier Lily Absinthe On Etsy!!

Angus has given up his fabric and we’re happy to announce that Angus’ Attic is now Atelier Lily Absinthe! We’re still located on Etsy, but we’ll be offering a wider product mix over the course of the winter to also include various curated ready-to-wear items along with more fabrics and other historical fashion ephemera. And, as always, everything we advertise is in stock and ready for immediate shipment. Below are just some of what we have on offer:






And For Some Lace Trim…

It’s no secret that I love antique lace but it’s wise to have sources of high quality modern reproduction lace as well! This is cotton thread embroidered on matte poly net…it really has the look and feel of antique early machine’d lace. This is a ten yard piece, hard to find!

Something New…

Another gorgeous length of silk, it’s not just a silk stripe, it has a nicest textured woven stripe for a little interest between all that sage green. I’m seeing a pretty 1880s bustle bodice/overskirt with enough left over for skirt bows.

For the Perfect Shirtwaist…

Can’t you see this as an 1890s shirtwaist and skirt? This is one of my favorites…it’s nearly a periwinkle blue with white woven stripe and super soft. There’s enough here for ALL of your “Anne of Green Gables” puffed sleeves needs.

Happy Thanksgiving! 😄

Once again the holiday season is upon us in its full glory and we would like to pause a moment from our busy schedule to wish everyone a happy Thanksgiving. It’s been a trying year for us but there’s also a lot to be thankful for and most importantly, our friends and family. For us, the sewing machines and ironing board will be temporarily idle and we’ll be spending some time relaxing with friends and family. 😄
