Day Day 10 of #VictorianFebruary is: “Juicy Details” and there’s nothing like a bit of ruffly scandal to raise some eyebrows! The best details are usually hidden during a promenade. 🙂
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.
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. 🙂
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… 🎄
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. ♡
