My Grandma's Fashion Designs

My Grandma was one of the craftiest people I have ever known. I used to love to visit to see the new projects she was working on. I was lucky enough to inherit a fraction of her talent. When she passed away we found a stack of drawings that she had done when she was younger. Most were of her fashion designs. It was amazing to go through them and see the fashions of her day and the descriptions of the designs.

I became the keeper of these illustrations and I thought it would be interesting to turn them into decorations. I found two frames at an antique shop, framed two of the designs and hung them in my bedroom. 

Every time I see them it makes me smile...

It was very hard to decide which drawings to frame since there were so many amazing drawings.  Here are a few more of my favorites.
