I have been working on this idea for a long time and it is finally done!! I really like how it turned out. I used layers of vintage lace, beautiful Hoffman challenge fabric for the lining and some gorgeous buttons.
I also have a lace top almost done and hope to share with you soon. Can you see a vintage doily as a top?? How about many of them??? Another of those ideas that have been brewing for over a year. I am thinking about dyeing it yet to get some color cohesion. I may take pictures of it as is and get some feedback from you all.
Hope you are all safe during this weekend of Hurricane Irene. DD in SC is fine but I have not heard from my brother in Virginia Beach.
My blog is a place for me to journal, add things I have made, connect with other bloggers, sewers, CQers, doll makers.
