This dress was sewn entirely by hand from a vintage printed hankie, amethyst dupioni silk, and cotton lining fabric.
The dress has a fitted bodice that allows the focus to go to the skirt. A shaped hemline is accented with a bow. Back is fastened with buttons over metal snaps. An ultrasuede belt with rhinestone buckle cinches the waist. Fashion includes dress, belt, and magnetic rhinestone brooch. Available now in my Etsy shop.
This classic dress has a silk wrap inspired by a vintage Vogue pattern. An ultrasuede belt with rhinestone buckle cinches the waist, while a rhinestone brooch accents the collar of the wrap. Available now in my Etsy shop.
I had just enough of this luscious shade of pink silk tissue taffeta to make another vintage Dior inspired dress. Available now in my Etsy shop.
I found this vintage hand-embroidered a while ago and fell in love with the soft color palette. Then I ran across a lovely peach linen hankie that matched perfectly. So after much internal debate, I decided a bubble skirt would best show off the circular design of the embroidery. The plain color bodice draws out the peach embroidery on the flowers. A rhinestone brooch and ultrasuede belt with rhinestone buckle complete the look. Available now in my Etsy shop.
This week I’ve been working on a custom order. The client sent me a Coach scarf and a bandana as well as pictures of the fashions she wanted created. Here is the result.
I’m always happy to do a custom order, if you would like something made especially for you. Just message me from my Etsy shop to work out the details.
I found a remnant of this gorgeous embroidered dupioni silk on eBay and decided it would make a perfect holiday dress. The remnant was 12” x 4 yards, so I’m thinking you’ll see more fashions from this fabric in the future …

This dress proves two hankies are better than one. The bodice is hand sewn from rich red silk tissue taffeta. The skirt from a printed Christmas hankie features a shaped hemline with a bow detail. Under the dress is a full petticoat made from a vintage hand embroidered hankie. A magnetic rhinestone brooch adds that little bit of sparkle. Available now in my Etsy shop.
