|1745-1750; altered 1770; Britain. Williamsburg.|
I found the most gorgeous vintage passementerie trim while browsing online last night. It was all on this great site, called, you guessed it, vintagepassementerie.com. They have all kinds of beautiful vintage and antique ribbons, metal lace, buttons, beaded flowers, etc. I found some amazing gold metal lace trim and brass mesh from germany (both silver and gilt). I also got a yard of a lovely woven metallic ribbon that I can absolutely see embellishing my garters. Here are the pics from the website.
I'm so excited, now I have the supplies to make something like this stomacher... Ah, someday!
