Edwardian Dress White Cotton For Summer
How we've waited for summer. The flowers and lushness it brings, but the other day we took photographs in the hayfield. The lighting is the best in the evening and the rolling green hills remind me of the English Pride and Prejudice hills. My daughter has a few vintage Edwardian dresses that she purchased and I love the details and lace on the cotton fabric. They are light, lacy and elegant. It gets me in the sewing mode handling the the delicate fabric and seeing all of the hook and eye closures. It was a dreamy era of white clothing that I wish would come back even if it's just one day a week. Our wild violets were blooming months ago, but we have these violet plates that keep the blooms alive all summer.
