once again, we've been busy elves this season re-working vintage fur. you guys are scooping up our re-made vests like crazy!!! fur is actually one of the more difficult "fabrics" to work with and it makes a big old mess. (we've been known to cut outside even). but when it's all said and done (cleaning/cutting/re-lining/etc.) the result is gorgeous and on-of-a-kind. and after all that transforming of an old coat-- we have some fabulous left-overs. sometimes we'll fashion the ends or sleeves (use it all up!) into luxe scarves... and sometimes we make pillows. like really AWESOME pillows.
my last trip back to Boston, my mom and i spent time in Holiday's sewing studio going through the backstock of our fur remnants and coordinating them with pretty fabric. i bought every last yard i could find of this GORGEOUS pink chinoiserie silk. i'm in love.
fun black & white on rabbit
and leopard (naturally) backed on mink.
many more in the works!
