Pretty!!!

I haven’t worked with beaded laces in a while, other than to cut them for customers, but these ones would sorely tempt me! I got several 4-yard cuts from the Haute Couturier. You know, the one that begins with a V, and whose gowns cost upwards of $5000 in places like Saks and Neimans. Yes, that one! These are so exquisite, I just had to share!

Ooooooo

4 Yards of Beaded French Lace, 50 inches wide, Chocolate

Ahhhhhhh…

4 yards of Beaded Embroidered French Net, 42 inches wide, Red

Oo la la!

4 yards of Beaded French Net, 36 inches wide, Aqua, Gold and Pearl on Black

There’s only one of each of these. Each piece has enough for a spectacular dress (or skirt or jacket, in the case of the last). These are utterly fabulous!!!!

Happy (Couture) Sewing!

    The beauty brings tears to my eyes. I’m so glad one of us gets to touch and see in person and my budget is so glad it’s not me, LOL. I do hope they go to good homes where they will be treasured, taken out and petted, and sewn up into beautiful splendor!

  4. Wow — I just clicked over to your bustier post. I did not know you were a singer! What kind of singing do you do? These beaded laces are gorgeous. I wish I had events on my calendar to warrant special fabrics like these; I think they are a bit much for the carpool pickup after school… 🙂

      I used to be an opera singer (lyric coloratura soprano). Alas, chemotherapy and the resultant menopause have not been kind to my voice, so I have refocused on other things, like fabric! 🙂

    Ooh la la is right! And – very belatedly – it was wonderful to meet you last week! FYI – Peter dropped off fabric and goodies on Monday. So glad I had witnesses! 😉

    Amazing fabrics. One day I’ll go to an event where I could wear a dress like that, but ’til then I’ll have to dream…..
