I love this trim so much! I just could not find burgundy fabric flowers anywhere for love or money (and oh, I looked! Even in downtown LA!), so I finally decided I was going to have to just make them myself. I’m very happy with how they turned out.
This gorgeous robe à la française is almost done! Just a little more hand stitching And I’m still working on the stomacher. Robe à la française made of burgundy and gold silk damask, lined with burgundy linen, and an incorporated boned period corset. Burgundy silk petticoat, trimmed with matching self-trim swags and gold lace, mokuba ribbon, gold tassels, and handmade silk flowers. Stomacher made of burgundy silk and hand applied metallic lace.
