The complicated fin de siecle corset era has to be my bestest favorite…that’s what gives that black sequined gown it’s shape. I need more of these in my life.
Working in Color!
Working in color today! Hand finishing corsets and pairing their silk ribbon corsages…classic black satin is nice, but salmon, coral, and blue are so cheerful. 😃
Corsets & Petticoats
What’s a corset without the softness of a petticoat? I love the contrast of lacy layers spilling from a tightened waist, don’t you?
Fin De Siecle Style
Laced while stitching on a Saturday, my favorite era shape is definitely a fin de siecle. 😄
Long sewing day…time to unlace and watch a movie. Currently enjoying “Hotel Portofino” on PBS via Amazon Prime. Now I want to go to Italy…combined with a little dress up, of course.
