I received another antique fashion print the other day. This one has been exquisitely embellished with little dresses sewn in silk, and this one is different from the last one I received in that the dresses have been given more dimension with card under the skirts and padding in the bodices. Someone has also sewn little bracelets and earrings onto the ladies using little seed beads.
I had to take it out of he frame to clean the glass and fix the backing. The fabrics are amazing – there’s nothing like the feel of old silk. This one dates to 1868.
