Winter Celestina (it's white, not yellow, I swear…)

Added Feb 4, 2009

Bar Harbor, Main...






You can’t tell because my (free) camera dyes everything yellow-gold, but this is actually snow white, with a delicate black pattern. I made this last winter, and then promptly forgot to upload it (or anything else for that matter). I logged back on when a friend told me that now everything costs money (!) and saw that there’s been an explosion of Celestinas in provencal fabric, and even a number of those in black and white. So here’s mine!

Material Notes

Starchy cheap cotton…

    Did you use more fabric for the skirt to flare it like that?

    Celestina has never been a favourite of mine. I love your sleeveless version tho’. The bound sleeves and neckline and fabric with more body gives it a real 50’s feel. Well done.

    It’s beyond beautiful, in any color. I’m adding it to my favorites!
