Summer Gauze Romance

Oh how I love Gauze fabric, since I was about 12 ,13 when I first saw a photo of an older Natalie Wood in a beautiful turquoise gauze caftan, I knew I loved that fabric! She wore a beautiful turquoise necklace and jewelry with it. I just wanted one of those dresses. I would always fill out the order form for a catalog that sold them, but never seemed to have the money to get it, they were quite costly to a 13 yr old :) I have always loved the romantic feel of cotton gauze, I could see myself wearing that caftan in Africa overlooking the Serengeti , yes I was a HUGE out of Africa movie fan....Karen Blixen fan, remember in the old issue of Victoria Magazine....? Now I find myself buying lots of gauze, bolts of it last is what I came up with! Maybe drifted a bit away from my vintage lace clothing but, for summer, gauze is it for me, the bloomers are amazingly comfy....and best of all they come in size small - 3x even bigger if you request.....having larger sizes is very important to me. Enjoy the photos I'll be back soon with something else under my gauze sleeve :)

Vintage Passion

Another beauty in lace..... I have one more to show you this coming week....I'm in a lavender mode, dying laces lavender for a top today, its unusual, I added tea to the dye, didnt want that bright purple color,,,, The gauze linen top is so pretty, I have them in tea stain pink, tea, and white, so romantic!! Keep your eyes out for some lavenders and the new bag I made for Sandy:) Love and hugs, xoxo Kimberly
