Mr. X tells me that most of Kembri's designs are based on existing pieces that reside in museums and private collections embellished with her personal touch and sense of whimsy to bring the dress alive.
Interestingly, the Curious Seamstress does not recolor the gowns or dresses she recreates in SL. Each gown is in its original color, though sometimes she will enhance the look with a bit of artistic touch up to bring them back to their original state, virtually speaking.
Kembri considers herself to be a fashion historian more than a fashion designer. In addition to supporting FFL, she also likes to teach others about the history of fashion if they have an interest. And, thank you Mr. X she did not forget you guys... she has made you a period suit..... and, a "California Dandy" at that! What's not to love ---
And, guys, never fear, there great shoes toooo - also being offered at Curious Seamstress at FFL.
