le petit echo de la mode

When I went to the flea market at Malvern a few weeks ago I bought this french magazine dated 1928
I love the illustrations and the colours used on the front cover. Inside there are a selection of lace patterns to follow....

I also bought some beautiful pieces of handmade lace and broderie anglaise collars, and then spent the day happily sewing on vintage seed beads to decorate two new drawstring bags, for a new collection at Waterperry Gallery, which opens on May 5th.

Have a lovely weekend whatever you are up to.


  1. So much inspiration in the French magazine. Love your lace bag!

    Happy weekend!
