5 minute project: Pretty up an old pair of cream vintage gloves by sewing on ribbon roses from my craft stash.
I think these will go nicely with the blue wool coat I made a while back.
When I made the bustle back I thought it’d be cute, but didn’t realize how heavy all those layers of wool would be! I have to wear a strong petticoat underneath (which I did not have when I took these photos).
The tricorn was made by Lily of the Valley Designs.
I used several kinds of venise lace, a striped taffeta lining and little heart buttons.
Why yes, that is the same wool as my riding habit, which was made from the leftovers from this coat.
Thanks Lillian! I was glad I wore the coat yesterday because it was so cold!
