Anne Stokes Gothic Tarot

This is a long overdue review! Quite some time back, the lovely Dani sent me this exquisite set of tarot cards that are so suited to my style! They are the Anne Stokes Gothic Tarot!

The images are not mine, I've used online images as they come out better than my photos.
It's taken me ages to get around to doing this post! Quite some time ago the lovely Dani sent me this gorgeous Gothic tarot! My phone camera didn't want to take great photos, so I have grabbed some from online.

The art is beautiful and very classic Romantigoth! I love it!

Syle Inspiration: Ladylike Delicacy Blog

I think I need to add 40s/50s to my current era inspiration of Victorian, Edwardian and 1920s!

Images from Ladylike Delicacy

I hope she doesn't mind me sharing them! Please check out her awesome style!

Wardrobe Sew-A-Long: Blouse





Blouse from Burda Magazine, 104/105 blouse Burda 12/2000

I used lace at the collar instead of the stand collar, which was too tall. 
I used the single ruffle version of the pattern.
The pattern was meant to have a 22 inch zipper at the top back but I used one that was a bit shorter and it worked out.
Hoping to get an outfit photo of it soon.

Also check out the Sew-A-Long posts coming up at Time Warp and Madame Mari Mortem!

Happy Holidays from Sarah and I
