Goldberry Dress





Goldberry sang many songs for them, songs that began merrily in the hills and fell softly down into silence; and in the silences they saw in their minds pools and waters wider than any they had known, and looking into them they saw the sky below them and the stars like jewels in the depths.     
-J.R.R. Tolkien

Goldberry Dress is made from vintage upholstery fabric; it's a gold-and-green shimmery fabric that is really quite stunning to see up close. This is the last of it; I've used it for three projects now! The embroidered waistband is made out of a pair of suspenders that are probably from the 1960s. The tulle overskirt is a deep navy color and is absolutely my favorite part about this piece. I may go through a tulle phase this winter!

Goldberry Dress is available for $95 at Pageboy Boutique in Pittsburgh. ~SOLD~
