The original doiley dress with pocket slip maker....

This is a write up from a customer...

Hi Lucy,

I just bought this dress – well for my wife. above dress is my second purchase from Lucy V etsy shop. When the first dress that I purchased (for my wife) arrived a few months back, it was laced with an aromatic perfume and wrapped in fine tissue paper. Customer service and going the extra mile are key selling points for Lucy V. On a whim, and simply because I admire Lucy’s style of dress making as does my wife, I decided to purchase another one of her dresses. Coincidentally, I realized that she, like many Etsy sellers is an artist whom I admire.

Her primary medium is cloth with a leaning towards vintage fabrics, bright and/or muted colors, silk and lace. She weaves these disparate components into one of kind wardrobe compositions. Articles created primarily include, dresses, aprons, and handbags. Each article is handmade and well balanced in that it functions as a work of art as well as a functional article of clothing. Simply put, I love her work; I’ll come back to her store for years to come as long as she is still producing. Oh, I forgot to mention one of the best points; that her prices are comparable to mass produced clothing from a traditional brick and mortar store. thankyou so very much
