Petrune 2009 holiday collection

Beautiful Things, Made by Petrune

We are so proud of our 2009 holiday collection, made by Natasha Keller in our upstairs sewing studio. This group of dresses feature vintage inspired designs in silk, satin, and velvet. These dresses come with belts made with one of a kind vintage findings.
This one is made with a plum colored silk, and features a hand beaded belt from the ’70’s.

This dress is the same design as the plum dress above, but is made with black satin and features a belt made with a marcasite rose salvaged from a 1920’s gown.
This dress is made using a 1940’s vogue pattern. We have this version in black satin, and a similar one with a black velvet bodice.

We purchased this coat from our friend Betty, who lives in Corning, NY, and is 97 years old. She is more energetic and positive than most people a quarter her age, and we look to her has a great example of how to live.
1940's coat
This 1940’s coat features a nipped in waist and a full skirt. It has a lovely shape, with sleeves that start wide under the arms, and get tight around the wrists (warm!) and the full bottom has such graceful movement.
