Cachette du Marie Antoinette

We have run out of stock for this item.

"Dear, dear Marie, your impeccably elegant, over-the-top style is the inspiration of this magnificent collection of ephemera, millinery and ribbons. We only wish you could be here to admire it."

We have literally stuffed our hand made cornflower blue band box with all things Marie Antoinette. The box, the crowning jewel to the collection, depicts Marie's monogram on an heirloom golden Dresden doily, tied up with the prettiest of blue silk ribbons. 

The ribbons contained in the collection are from France {of course}, England and America. They are made of vintage silks, lace, jacquards and velvets. There is a lovely vintage sheer blue ribbon with pink picot edges, a length of pink satin "Mon Amie", and a woven pink ruffled perfection. And just because it is so yummy, we have included a 20" square of the palest blue silk fabric.

The Dresden embossed foils are perfect for this theme, find high sailing clipper ships, golden crowns, elegant swans, perfect bows and swags. You will find many uses for the scalloped rococo border trims, over 5 yards each in gold and in silver. There are sheets of stickers in a beautiful script font and in a swag border. You will find a rolled up piece of vintage wallpaper perfect to cover the little box with plenty left over for other projects. There are pretty blue tags and reproduced images of Marie Antoinette. Not to mention that pink butterfly that wants to be in every photo.

Make a tiara inspired by Marie with our Dresden tiara base, sailing ships, ostrich plumes, glass glitter and vintage bling. Fashion a garland or wreath with the vintage blue millinery flowers and leaves, and a couple of bunches of forget-me-not's and the rock-candy stamens hung with ethereal blue silk ribbon. We've even included some wire and floral tape to complete the project. Make a simple pearl bracelet with included findings.
