In my last post I said that I had been working with some vintage crepe de chine. I have had it for about 10 years and it was part of birthday present I received from my Mum and Dad.
It consisted a vintage chocolate box that has a lovely padded fabric lid
- it's a shame they don't make chocolate boxes like these anymore - and
contained a mixture of antique/vintage lace, silk crepe de shine,
embroidered silk and a waist band/belt (photos 5 and 6).
I've been using the box's contents sparingly, but below there are a couple of things I've made from the treasures.
Do you have any treasures you only like to use sparingly?
