      It was a fun shoot the house is from the 1800 and uninhabited for 10 yrs. It has an interesting history a local Dr lived and officed here. He preformed surgery and delivered babies in the basement.

      It’s a protected property the family hasn’t been able to sell it because the house is a historic land mark but they don’t have the money to restore it.

    An absolutely gorgeous work of art. The dying is stunning and shape of the bodice and skirt hem are so editorial. Did you use a center front seam? It looks like it in the first photo – it’s an amazing design choice.

      The seam was from the pre-existing drape it was cut from.

    It’s stunning! The fabric looks a bit like linen from afar, though if it’s silk I’m guessing it’s much more luxurious! Beautiful and the photos are amazing. You’ve got my vote!
