It may be snowing and blowing out there to the point where flannels, a cozy throw and hot cup of tea on the couch are the only way we can even fathom making it through the winter but, it is also that time of year where we clothing artists need to start thinking about and working on our spring collections. I have been doing more than just thinking about it. I have completed three new pieces using some vintage crocheted lace bodices, linen tablecloths and unique laces of old.
Each of these pieces has been styled by me to be worn of over a tank top with a favourite pair of jeans and sandals or flats. They would be equally feminine and even more the statement piece worn with a simple summer slip dress.
I am not sure whether to call the style a tunic, coat dress, long vest or just simply, a wearable art topper. I do, however, know that each design is one of a kind as the textile items used to create them cannot be duplicated and my usual attention to embellishment and detail has been lovingly applied to all.
I had a wonderful time making each of these lovelies and would love to make a few more but, alas, I have no more of these bodices left. Time for a treasure hunt for more!!!
