Edwardian Clothing and Millinery Brooches

Isn't the lace along the top of this Edwardian Camisole so pretty! If only I was still a size small, LOL. Ah well, those Victorian Gals were squished into their corsets . . . right? Some "young thing" shopping on Etsy will fit into one I hope : ) I think the delicate tops look great with jeans. They can be worn over a tank top ~ or perhaps a pretty dress form will be lucky to wear one.

I made many Millinery Brooches yesterday and will sell them with the vintage tops, blouses and camisoles I am posting in my Etsy Shop.

They sell brooch pins at Michael's so that made it pretty easy to adapt individual flowers into jewelry.

Looks pretty against the lace . . .

The delicate cottons . . .

and the hand done Crochet.

I love the pin tucks and Mother-of-Pearl buttons on these long sleeves.

I may have to pin the brooch in the center of this blouse, above the button holes. The sheer cotton is quite delicate. The flowers are relatively light, so that helps.

So Pretty with the Irish Crochet.

Well . . . back to more listing : )
Thanks for stopping by.
