Cherry Blossoms for Silkstone Barbie, Poppy Parker, and Victoire Roux

Back in the day, when you were in mourning, you not only wore black dresses, but also black accessories, including handkerchieves. Among the vintage black mourning hankies can be found some exquisite examples of petit point embroidery, such as this one. The colorful flowers just pop off the black background. It’s unusual to find a hankie with such a large area of petit point embroidery, so I decided to show it off on a full length skirt. An elegant peplum blouse of violet silk tissue taffeta finishes the look. Available now in my Etsy shop.
