I continue to be obsessed with French fashion from the 18th century. This is one of my favourite creations. I'm not sure whether what I am making is considered art because it is too pretty and lacks angst. In any case, I love making them and now have a whole wall of them in my studio.

I have run out of this gorgeous fabric and am on the hunt for more toile de jouy. Nothing seems nearly as pretty and I am getting discouraged. I'll be pounding the pavement again today looking for some more fabric. I might just have to book a trip to Paris to find the perfect toile de jouy!
