Sorting through some of my precious vintage textiles stored in a little set of drawers I keep in my workroom this week, I came across these c1930's lingerie samples.
They are small unused fabric samples that had been hidden away in a book. They are examples of fabrics suitable for making camisole tops and under garments of the time.
So after my rediscovery, I have decided it is time to start using them in my festive fairy making...
Using this soft oyster crepe with lace edge and exquisite embroidered flowers as my starting point, I created Miss Glowing Embers.
I combined the small fabric panel with a shimmering white satin brocade salvaged from a bridesmaid dress from my parent's wedding (November 1960).
Lots more pretty elements pick up the soft oyster shade to complete this special OOAK fairy.
