I’m so excited that vertical striped stockings were a thing in the 1920s
an uncommon thing, but a thing nonetheless
Inspired by the rich gold and black of Dolce and Gabbana’s A/W 2012 collection, I saw this fabric and knew it was meant to be. Just finished over Thanksgiving weekend, it’s been a great relief since I haven’t sewn anything this ambitious in a long time.
It’s done! I wonder what my next sewing project should be. I’m on a roll!
Gorgeous! The pleating with the paisley? (brocade? tapestry) fabric is just great. Impeccable taste as usual!
Unscrew the top and keep something special inside! Sold on Etsy.
