This week it is my very great pleasure to introduce a gown inspired by Josephine Baker. This incredible woman was far ahead of her time, and is a joy to hear and watch on Youtube now. Her career started in Paris in the 1920s and spanned five decades. She is so joyfully, beautifully alive, that one cannot help but smile and admire her. This gown is named for her, 'Creole Goddess', which is one of the names she was affectionately called.
The real dress is in a museum collection. I hope that you'll savor the music and learn about, then remember, this very remarkable woman.
Finally, Seamstress is currently part of two Mardi Gras hunts. Look for these prizes at the New Toulouse store. Both are in a single hunt prim.
Yes, these are free for the duration of the hunt!
Next, Steam: The Hunt will be starting tomorrow and two of the Seamstress stores, Seraph City and New Babbage, are involved. Please stay tuned for details!
I wish you a wonderful Monday, and hope to see you soon!
