Sitting on the floor in the “Ooh-La-La” sewing parlor patiently hand stitching each of these stripey silk pleats. Where’s Spring? This old house is Brrrrrr cold!
These were special custom boots I had made nearly twenty years ago for an event, they’re an amazing copy of a museum pair by Francois Pinet. Sadly, they were trashed in a horrific riding accident I was in and they’ve been sitting in a closet ever since. I would shudder when I touched them, the muscle memory was so strong. I firmly believe that things retain energy (clothing, houses, jewelry, books, etc. ) so it’s time to taken them to my shoe person to restore them and start over…because they’ll look great with the new day dress we’re making!
Spring is just around the corner, and we’ve been preparing for a busy dress up season, starting with Clockwork Alchemy next week, then London, Bath, Tombstone, Germany, Paris, and a few Victorian Balls in between. Be sure to book your next gown or corset ahead of time, our bespoke slots are filling up for the year!
