This was a great dress, it was ruined in such magnificent ways. I’ve been making things with it for almost two years and it still has more to give – transparent silk chiffon, a little more lace and bits of shattered silk – not sew-able but perfect for tiny corsages.
I wish I had spent more time photographing it when it arrived so I’m giving it a last hurrah now – it’s last breath in it’s original form.
Oh that is lovely fabric. I can see a few dolls wearing that lovely tattered silk & chiffon
how wonderful to consider the new life you have given this amazing dress.
Amazing work… Love !
It is wonderful to give life to grand old things, I am sure they enjoy feeling useful again
What stories it could tell…but you’re helping it to live on…bravo….
Ann, I’ve been remiss about posting on your blog for so long. Its always such a treat to see what you are up to and admiring your process. I hope all is well and that your songbirds find you singing along with them…
I am a ‘fan’ of yours, and it will be so much fun to see what inspires such a creative, talented crafter!
Awesome ! I will go there!
Absolutely wonderful !!! Greetings from France
