Deer Valley Peasant Top

Yesterday I listed another long line peasant tunic. This time I used Joel Dewberry's fabric from his collection "Deer Valley"...I also used a white lace trim on the border with a robin egg blue satin ribbon. I know that top did not need that, but I like playing around with trims. I also like the way that trims add texture to a garment and  think it gives it that little handmade charm.
The weather outside is cool, but not cold, and the light in my pictures reflect that. The colors are actually more robin egg blue and a dark red that I think are striking in contrast.
 This is my attempt at getting a close up. I have been asked, "what's up with that barn wood background"..I have messed around with different backgrounds, and wood and trees are my favorite backdrops. White backgrounds I feel stunt my creativity in my shop. I want my photo's to breath.

Yes, I am putting my hair up in this photo, and thus did not put it in my listings, but I like the picture of the tunic in the back. It really shows off it's nice A-line shape. Some could call this tunic a dress, and that is fine with me. It is not up to what people do with my products they purchase. I personally would not wear it as a dress, as it's too short for me. I love tunics that go to the upper thigh because in my opinion it makes the backside look smaller and my legs skinnier. I have a thin athletic build. I was a cheerleader in school, so I have the classic cheerleader thighs.

I will add that in the spring, my background will become a nice golden color when our fence is power washed and stained a golden honey color. Question, what do you think of my fence background, and would you wear this tunic?


  1. Love the top and I think the fence makes a perfect background.
