Now that we’re back, it’s time to get caught up with preparing our latest ready-to-wear Daylilys and corsets. But first we must have coffee…
Things have been a bit hectic around the atelier with the current fires here in Southern California but as always, we strive to persevere! Things are fine now and hopefully we’ll be back in track with developing our new pret-a-porter collections of dresses and corsets. The corsets are especially exciting and the collection offers something for everyone at several price points. We’ll have more soon! Au revior!
Luscious blush and salmon vintage silk flosses from Elizabeth Emerson Designs, the packaging is beautiful and the threads are lovely to work with!
We’ve had a busy year, so I may…or may not be able to finish my new blue gown for “Helldorado” weekend in Tombstone. I’ve been busy with corset orders, and making new samples, then you may have heard that there were fires in the LA area this week. Sigh…busy. Last year for Helldorado, we had one of the heaviest hail and lightning storms on record for the area! Is it Old West Climate Change…or is Tombstone truly a haunted place? It sure feels like it sometimes…See you on Allen Street, as we go East…to be in The West. 🙂
Most of our Lily Absinthe Bridal designs tend to be ethereal and soft…this is our “Josephine”, a soft blue corset with an even softer sheer skirt, embroidered with lace and flower petals, worn over a pretty pale blue soft petticoat with oodles of ruffles. Her chapeau is designed and made by the talented Shurie Southcott of Lady Bird’s Hatberdashery. ♡
