Haute Couture

Haute Couture,,,,"high sewing".....a creation of exclusive custom fitted clothing.
A Haute Couture creation is made to order and made from high
quality, expensive fabric and sewn with extreme attention to detail by the most
experienced seamstress using hand-executed techniques.
My little tag was cut out by hand,,,from high quality watercolor paper which was first painted
and stamped. Holes were punched for the lacing of gold thread. A little "collar" was added
at the neckline and a triple bow was tied for added flair.
The piece was then sprayed and edged with the finest of gold ink .
The creation will be seen next week on the runways of Paris.
Au revoir mes amis. A bientôt.
Thanks Louise.... at Tag Tuesday,,,,,for inspiring this little creation.

Hello Cynnie,
Stopping by to thank you for your sweet comment. Always so fun to meet new bloggers. I've been snooping around in your blog and your watercolor paintings are just beautiful!!!! Such a beautiful talent! I tried to make the winter scene painting cool me down a bit as we are still baking here in the state of Georgia. This little tag is wonderful {as are your bound books}...so nice to meet you! Xo, Sue
