Description

I’ve had a couple old garments lying around that had become less than the sum of their parts, and decided to start playing around with what I could make out of them.

The body of this shawl comes from an antique fur stole, while the collar comes from a silk shawl and a silk/rayon velvet jacket.

It’s all very Holiday Party.

    This is beautiful! It would look great on a historical costume too, ie, Edwardian!
