Fashion Past ...

I have been going through some of my Antique Fashion Magazines, and have decide there are some I can part with.  That is actually not an easy decision!!  As I was listing them on ebay, I sort of felt guilty LOL, but alas, it is time for other people to enjoy, and  time for me to stop be greedy by hanging on to them.

Look at the delightful hand writing on the above!
 Then there is a matter that I have been remiss, and not blogged the two gowns recently made.  Both are Natural Form era.
 I love the pop of red in the back, making it a great  backdrop for the velvet bodice.

The above gown is truly a beauty!!  Primarily black with Amethyst peaking through at the back train, back bodice and bodice sleeves.This gown would make an excellent Second Mourning gown for those interested.

 Both gowns are listed on ebay, along with many past era publiations.

Next gown being created has begun!  Gold, Red, Black, ruffles and beauty!!

Have a truly wonderful day!!!!!  Remember to smile!

Meet Gothic Lolita

Good Wednesday Morning!!!

All is well here in Beautiful Western Slope of Colorado ... other than it is HOT, and we could use some rain. Hopefully that can be remedied this weekend.

I had a blast with the Gothic Lolita!  Turned out soooo cute!

It is for sale on both of my etsy and ebay sites.  Here is the esty listing:

 I absolutely love how the back of the Caplet turned out, and adding the little sailor collar feature is adorable
 Yesterday afternoon I finished the Victorian Gothic skirt and I am loving the direction it is going.  For some unknown reason .... okay I do know ... I kept adding to the decoration of it.  I couldn't help myself!  It just kept screaming for more, so more it received.
I wanted to keep the red to a minimum in the skirt and I think by putting it in this way turned out super enticing.  Today I start the overskirt, so more pictures later, an it is my hope this Victorian Gothic will be listed over the weekend, as I keep thinking of another Victorian Gothic I want to make. Think black (of course) and Amethyst!  Yummy

On a side note, It is looking more and more my Corgi female, Abba, is with Puppy
Boston seems nonplussed LOL His favorite sleeping position, by the way hahaha

So, September could be an interesting and excited month for me and my dog pack family ...

Wishing all of you a beautiful an wonderful day. Remember to smile!

Change can be good!

Yes, yes, I know. I am LONG overdue with keeping this updated. I apologize, and I sincerely hope to be a better blogger. Maybe not everyday, but certainly hoping to write a few times a week ...

Let me start with telling you how excited I am about some changes here at House of Poleigh Naise! As long as there is a Victorian based garment in the works, I am a happy camper .... but I have to tell you, Medieval  and Renaissance cry my name these days, as well as Victorian Gothic, and even the playfulness of Lolita.
 This little Lolita is in the works! This is sort of a teaser picture as the ensemble is not yet completed.  I took the opportunity to cut out the pieces to a darling cape with a Victorian/Edwardian look to it.  I really wanted to make it out of a black Velvet, but was shy a bit in yardage.  My goal these days is to use what my stock has to offer and not go out to buy more.  So, the cape will be the same wonderful bridal satin which I used for the skirt. Needless to say, I am rather excited, and there are more Lolita's planned for the near future.
 Now this selection of fabrics is making me giddy!  A heavy on the slub Dupioni silk for the skirt, which I cut out yesterday afternoon, red satin, black lace, and just look at that red velvet!  Sigh .... I am in love!  The ensemble? A Victorian Gothic dripping with trained skirt, ruffles and lace, a contemporary low-necked bodice and a peplumed jacket with long flowing sleeves.  My inspiration is a tad unusual. I was sitting outside the other morning and two crows flew over. Generally I see sub colors of greens and purples, but that morning I saw a touch of red ... maybe it was the way the sun was shinning on the feathers, but it threw my imagination into a tail spin and I'm flying with it! All puns intended LOL

Until July 23rd, House of Poleigh Naise, both on etsy and ebay, are having a sale at 25% off if anyone is interested, as I HOPE you are!! If you prefer to shop via etsy, you will need to use the coupon code ANNIVERSARY to take the 25% off the listed price.  If you are an ebay purchaser, the gowns have already been reduced.

Here are pictures of the gowns you will see:

I invite you to go take a look!

What I really want for each of you is to have a wonderful day!  And remember to smile! Hugs to you all!
