SEW WHAT

Things I find and things I sew and junque that finds me!
Happy Yuletide garbing!
The Vics knew how to dress for Christmas, eh?

My new Yule chapeau


Edwardian boots from Victoria Trading Company
Coin purse found at a church rummage sale


Long cape gifted to me by one of my senior citizens.  It belonged to HER Mom!
Scarf, a vintage find
Capelet purchased at Dickens Festival
Muff by Fox


The whole package!
Found the lovely lace blouse at a thrift store.
Repurposed two skirts from thrift store
Lace cuffs from Victoria Trading Company
Was luck to find that Lizzie Borden "cheap silk" that has a low percent of cotton mixed
 with silk so makes it look quite old.


The perfect Regency jacket a la Austen!  Thrift shop find:  $3 (on 50% off day!)


Hat & Muff by Fox


GARB:  IT'S GOOD FOR THE SOUL!

I love your garb. I remember days when I used to fancy old-fashioned clothes and shoes.

I'm not really anonymous. I seem to be computer challenged today. :-)

Okay, holding back the Goatmother again. You made a muff!!! How cool is that?! The Goatmother had one when she was a wee child made of rabbit fur with a little fake fox head on it. Oh, how she loved that muff. Silly people don't make them for adults anymore though. What's up with that? I, myself, have enough fur that I guess I don't need a muff. Besides, I suppose I'd have to have two - front and back. :)
