Lady Violette's Sewing & Photography "Studio" in the Corner of the Kitchen ~ Trying on the Necklace!

Every now and then I am producing something in my little work space and I look at the ‘moment of making’ that I’m in the middle of and think, “This scene might make a good photograph!”So, I have been stopping, now and then, to take a picture and preserve the experience in my creative process in this environment that caught my attention. They are usually messy, interesting work in progress moments, and that’s what makes them appeal to me.

I posted one last week, when I was working on Princess Wow’s concert dress. Here is another, from the same day. I was photographing the two long dresses I had just finished making before I sent them off for her to wear in her upcoming NYC concert.

In this one I was dressing the mannequin in the second one, a bright colored sleeveless gown, and trying out a multi-strand amethyst, garnet, silver, and art glass necklace to see how it would look with the dress. I had just arranged the necklace on the mannequin and turned around to reach for a pair of scissors. When I turned back to work on the next detail of preparation, this interesting scene of the half clothed dress form trying on the necklace caught my eye!

  1. Lady Violette! Thanks for much for showing us how to tie scarves! You have really inspired me back into wearing scarves! Now I need to study more how to tie them from you! Love all of your terrific photography and writing too!
    You Class Chicken recipe is so fantastic too! Love the Herbs de Provence which you showed me too. Its great! My husband, Roland aka Prince POW WOW, loves it too.
    Your purses are stunning and you have inspired me to start thinking about collecting vintage bags and fixing them up and adding a scarf! Fun!
