Day Twelve of Fashion The Captivating & Pulchritudinous World of The Curious Seamstress

Day Twelve of Fashion The Captivating & Pulchritudinous World of The Curious Seamstress


Indeed for The 12th Day of Holiday Fashion Brings us to
Lady Kembri Tomsen's House of GreenWood Design ((GWD))
The Curious Seamstress
This is such a gorgeous velvet gown, named Elizabeth. The original gown is currently in a drawer in museum archives. The gown dates from the late 1890s and is what is now known as a combination or conversion dress. The Victorians could be practical when it came to expensive garments, and one way they extended the use of a dress was to have two different bodices to use with the same skirt. This gown is a prime example of such a garment. The jacket is meant for day wear.
A blouse is furnished with this outfit for the day wear aspects, as a lady may have wished at some point to take off her jacket. The sleeves were huge, leg of mutton style, and were balanced by a small waist and larger skirt at the hemline.
" The skirt swept out the back, and if there was a bustle it was very small. At this point the bustle was all but dead. For this gown, the most eye catching feature has to be the ballgown bodice. The intricate cream colored lace with its tiny sequins and gingerbread appearance so strongly reminded me of Christmas gingerbread that I had to save it for December. The skirt is unadorned silk velvet, and the whole ensemble is very rich and elegant, as befits a gown by the House of Worth."

Indeed the "Elizabeth" gown is a Master Piece .. of course Period Undergarments always
Included, as are two darling ostrich fans, one open, one closed 
Next this Most clever and creative Designer takes us all on a Journey to
The Roaring 20s .. Meet Bubbles .. who starts out with the cutest Undergarments !!
Once again, let me quote Lady Kembri here ..
The original dress is in a private collection at the moment. It's one of those special gold sequin dresses that's just fun and eye catching! How could you not admire the bubbles of color around the hips? The other fun thing about this dress is you can really accessorize with several different colors. For myself I picked red and black, though someone else might pick blue and pink! It just depends on what colors you want to pick up out of the hip area.
"The head dress is based on a period headpiece ad from France.
It might have been a bit much for some American flappers,
but for the flapper who was in the know and on the leading edge of fashion,
this was a perfect headpiece. So if you're brave enough, wear it on out to the dance floor!
If not, the dress will look just as nice without it."
The head dress has been left mod so you can change the feather color if you wish.
If you do that, click on the headpiece, pick Edit, then click Edit linked parts, click on a feather,
and then change the color.
The base color for the feathers is white, so they will take any color you care to give them.
Each of these ensembles are Most Special .. Heavy Hitters if YOU please ..
I think when it comes to real life details Lady Kembri has to be one of the most thoughtful !!
This ensemble comes with darling Red Shoes and an Adorable Black Boa ..
But please remember something .. Lady Kembri like all good creative artists
gives you the basics .. What one decides to do with them to make their own look
from these Gems is up to them !!
The flow of Bubbles ((like each of Lady Kembri Designs )) is Much fun
You are sure to twirl and flow on the Dance Floors or even as You Walk ..

Joy of course comes with her own Undergarments !
Just beautiful .. in a saucy pink soft satin and lace trim .. Yum Yum !!
"this 1930s evening gown, Joy. Joy is based on a gown that is in a museum archive.
It is a pale gold satin and has a very low back, !
The gowns of the 1930s were often cut on the bias, which was a way of making the gown cling more closely to the body. This gown is not a bias cut gown, but the silky satin would have slide along the curves of the upper torso, and then flowed down to a swirling hemline. It is an elegant, seemingly simplistic gown that is quite sexy."
