I started my journal off with an altered photo of a seamstress. She owns a couture house and learned sewing from her mother and grandmother. The book will feature members of her "family" and friends, all modeling garments from her collection. When this book is passed around, other members will create additional pages to add to her story.
If you've ever watched House of Eliot on PBS, you'll know exactly where I got my storyline.
My seamstress ancestor.
And here is the beginning of the story...
The outside of the journal has an exposed spine with a chain stitch binding
I'll post again when the journal returns home in a year!
