sewing lace



Last week I finished my favorite dress of the few I've made so far!  It is made entirely of lace, unlined. I love it and have worn it with a black slip and black tights and with a nude slip and no tights and it's lovely both ways. The lace was difficult to sew and I had to make the buttons non-functioning because the stress would tear the lace around them... I put snaps underneath instead and it closes on the side with snaps as well.

B E A U T Y


I just spent nearly 100$ on a book of photographs: E.J. Bellocq's STORYVILLE PORTRAITS. They are the most beautiful photographs I have ever seen, so I don't feel bad. The Mr. and I just watched a documentary about Storyville, the infamous red-light district in New Orleans from 1987 up until WWI. It was pretty good, as far as those kinds of documentaries go (it's streaming on Netflix, if anyone is interested...), but I think I was most pulled in by the numerous amazing Bellocq photographs that were used. Gorgeous, fascinating, unusual photos of Edwardian southern prostitutes. Isn't it unreal???
