Busy Sewing with Lovely Fabrics

This last week I've been busy sewing some yummy fabrics - mostly soft silk & rayon velvets, some of them with devore or burn out designs.













I've been making more of my 1930's style Kimono Cocoon Wraps - I never know quite what to call them but they are rather lovely as a throw it on, instant touch of glamour. 

I've kept one in this mauve / grey colour and wear it all the time.









The 7 I've just finished making are all for my Etsy Shop.
Dark Blue Florentine Devore

Mauve with Black printed Devore


Lovely Rich Ruby Red


Plain Velvet in a Smoky Brown / Grey colour
 And - because I've been asked so many times - I've made some very Bridal ones too.  One in ivory lace -


The other in lovely soft rayon / silk velvet ... most of these Kimono Wraps have beads strategically placed for their weight (as did the original vintage 1930's wrap that I have copied).  I put a fall (or 3) of beads on the centre back point and groups of beads on the front corners.   Here are the pearls I sewed on the bridal velvet Kimono - it is a lovely buttery soft velvet.
