Part of a new set

I have been wanting to make up something for myself for a long long time. Years in fact. I have collected a lot of vintage black lace as well as jet beads. You can't find much of that any more, and I decided it was time to start on the black victorian morning gown. I also had a parasol frame I have wanted to recover, and this was the perfect time to do it, as I had so much different lace and trims etc.
  I have finished the parasol. Please take a look and tell me what you think. Remember this is people size, not doll size.

I am busy sewing down all the lace and trims on the blouse and skirt, but that will be a while yet for pictures. I will post pictures of the gown as soon as I finish it. I have to find a hat yet, and then there is the purse I want to make to go with everything else, so I have a ways to go. After collecting all that stuff I really wanted to finish what I had started so long ago. Otherwise who knows what would have happened to it. The lace etc I don't use I will be able to put on my doll dresses, and that is a good thing.

The umbrella is lovely. Nice job! Would you consider adding the gadget to allow a follower to subscribe via email? I don't get much time at the computer because of bad knees. It makes it so much easier to follow a great blog when new posts come right to one's inbox.
