I recently created this brosage (brooch + corsage) for my friend Judy R’s birthday. I started with a vintage gardenia millinery flower, and just started sewing on elements in creams and whites. Her color palette. My favorite component is the gauzy stuff – strips torn from a first aid kit gauze bandage roll. I added a pin back so she can attach it to a purse, or a pillow, or add a tie to it to adorn some element in her house decor. I can’t wait for my next invite to her lovely and serene home to see how she has used it.
