We actually had this dress for sale in the shop for quite a while. It was a unique piece made of quality materials (wool and velvet). But I think it overall was too busy and too heavy.
The piece of lace used in this top was actually from another redesigned piece that will be part of the collection (I like to re-use EVERYTHING--especially pretty fabrics like this antiqued lace!).
My sewing machine is currently on the fritz so things have been delayed a bit, but I'm hoping over Christmas I will find time to crank out the rest of the pieces I have planned and get the lookbook ready for January. Stay tuned!
