The Secret Garden

We were absolutely, positively drawn to this gorgeous, romantic dress. Nothing makes our heart sing more then seeing history and handwork come together in concert on a lovely dress. The drop waist beauty has layers of different textures (silk, chiffonish underlay, lace....), satin handwork on the lace and silk, hand-fashioned millinery flowers(Click on the closeup to see the green netting over the leaves OM!), and...well we could go on and on and on...it's only flaw...discoloration, and wear at the underarms.

This belonged to a stylish woman who worked with Metropolitan Grand Opera, and it is believed that it once belonged to her mother. When discussing restoration, we work closely with a talented local tailor. His job, ironically,...a costume tailor for the Houston Grand Opera millions of miles from the purchasing spot. Coincidence? We'll let you decide....but a clever designer could easily add a complementary overlay to the trouble spots to bring this beauty to it's former glory.

It has been hand-washed, and is divine.
