gone, gone, the girl in brocade.

Here is a shot of the latest treasury Geodiva created on Etsy.
When I was making my wedding gown I bought all that was left on the store's roll of grey silk charmeuse. After carefully cutting it out I was left with only a two inch tall strip of fabric! Whew! Many moons later I took that strip, pleated it by hand, added a sweet burgundy and white trim, and created this collar.
I called it Beatrice after Lemony Snickett's long lost beloved, and tagged it VFD, making it officially the nerdiest thing on etsy. I <3 Lemony.
