Finery..

In more ways than one.This is from a book called that I bought in 1980. Full of dresses made of antique lace , silks and snippets of Liberty's Tana Lawn. I would still wear this stuff .Sadly it gets harder to get old bits of lace etc in charity shops but I have a stack of Liberty print snippets as I made most of Holly's dresses. Posted by Picasa

What an inspirational book! I've just got a couple of Belle Armoire's from the US which I'm finding quite inspirational at the moment, too.
