Merry Christmas!

Happy Holidays from Curious Seamstress! 

This week's release is an elegant forest green velvet tea gown which would work wonderfully for any special at home occassion.  It is Edwardian and based on a House of Worth design from around 1901.

Next up is a uniquely beautiful sky blue satin and swansdown evening gown.  The slight train and swansdown trim is really amazing in person!  May I present, Snow Princess.

                                          Snow Princess for evening entertainments.

Thank you for stopping by.  I wish you a warm and wonderful holiday.

Cordially yours,

Gowns of the Season


This week there were three new releases. The first is a red velvet Victorian gown from the House of Worth. Elizabeth is a conversion gown, which can be worn either in the evening to a ball, or during the day. There is a jacket and hat for day wear, and a stunning velvet and lace bodice for evening wear.

The next gown is also a House of Worth gown from the 1890s. Done in black velvet with gold applique, this stunning gown is perfect for evening entertainments.

There are also tulle sleeves that have tiny gold sequins on them to add an ethereal touch to this gown.

Finally, we glide forward to the 1930s and a new Satin Doll gown, Joy.  This pale champagne colored satin gown is cut low in the back and comes with period undergarments and shoes.  The gloves are not included in this ensemble. 

Three stunning gowns, two time periods, and one lucky lady to own them all!  I hope that you find someone special to dance the Christmas Waltz with while wearing one of these beauties.

Warm regards,

Who spiked the egg nog? Bubbles did!


Bubbles, the newest Seamstress 1920s release, must surely have spiked that egg nog! Maybe? The song makes me smile and laugh, and even though there's nearly a century between this song and the dress, they fit very well together! I hope you'll come by Rosewood and pick up Bubbles for yourself!

Another release this weekend is Sheila, a 1920s day suit. Very proper and very pretty, as well as warm for those cold winter days!

There'll be more, as always, but for tonight I had to sneak in Bubbles and that egg nog song!

Cordially yours,
