I've become obsessed with old dresses, the lace, trim, buttons, and fabric. If it is torn or worn this is just fine and makes it more interesting. This started with a wedding dress my sister won on ebay and that we cut up for the old satin material. It was frayed and nearly falling apart but sewed up so beautifully when I added it to the old purse I've been making. Well last week end I won an old edwardian dress on ebay. It is gorgeous and I love it. Right now I have it hanging up in my studio, but someday when I have the courage I will cut it up and use it in my fabric art pieces. Today has been a quiet day recovering from the past work week, getting ready for the next. I hope you are all having a good week end.
