Rodeo/Texas style Vintage Wedding Guest Dress

I created this dress with the vintage wedding in mind. Possibly the Mother of the Bride or a wedding guest could wear the scarf hem detailed dress. The top is a beautiful alencon lace camisole - with zipped side entrance. The skirt is a combination of slips, hand dyed and created scarf hem from a beautiful chiffon patterned fabric. For sale in my Etsy shop -

A Visit To Revival

A visit to Revival Antiques in Raleigh, NC. A great place to find really chippy, old, unusual, big, turn of the century, 1930's furniture. Go with at least $300.00 and expect of fall in love with at least 10 things! You will probably have to do some cleaning up, repairing, possibly painting before you can take it inside your home. I love the whole place. These pictures are mostly from their warehouse at the end of the warehouse complex. Inside the actual store is the beautiful refurbished, repaired furniture- showroom. They are a wonderful source! Enjoy the pictures and visit when you can!

The turquoise slip dress

I've been busy creating some new slip dresses from my fabric and garment collection from thrifting and shopping. I'm very excited about the texture on the silk charmeuse turquoise slip - the zig zag stitch was so much fun - and I really did zig zag across the surface of the entire slip. I created ruffles from scraps I cut from the bottom of the slip - attached them to the neckline. There is a black lace bolero to go over the dress - to be sold together. It is almost finished - maybe tomorrow! This outfit will be listed on Etsy tomorrow. My shop, of course is Vintage Halls.

Welcome everyone!

This picture is from my trip to France this summer - a main hallway of the Louvre - what an inspiration for being creative! Welcome everyone to my newest blog which will feature my endeavors in furniture re-dos, shabby-cizing lamps, clothes, basically anything I fancy to shabby-cize. More to come as soon as I upload some of my inspiration pictures from my IPhone -
