I’ m making some one of a kind fancy girls from this antique ball gown. I used most of the large sections of lace for the pip and estella set and it’s almost gone. Now I’m using the chiffon and appliqueing tiny motifs I cut from the lace that is too damaged to use.
The under skirt of that gown was kind of a surprise, after several days of soaking years of grayness away it’s a beautiful pale pink and blue floral tulle. I’m making a little troupe of blue ballerinas from it.
My, what detailed work, applying the tiny bits. It will make a beautifully textured bird!
This is just SO romantic!
Beautiful, looking forward to seeing them!
Your work is breathtaking and I am truly in awe of your creations. Thanks for showing a little bit of the creation, somehow it makes seeing the end product even more magical…as in it just didn’t appear…those little bits of lace made something fabulous. Gushing…sorry should have just said..Love your work!

I am fascinated by what you can make out of old fabric and lace, your imagination has no boundaries and I am pleasantly surprised by your creativity.
