The Tailor’s Daughter

Augustine Wilton

Daily Prompt: Tailor

As she expertly stitched the last button in place, even she had to admit it was the most exquisite piece she had ever created. That maybe anyone had. Can she say that, think it even? Yes, when something this perfect is the product of hundreds of hours of handcrafted dedication she can admit it, at least to herself, it was incredible.

Nobody expected a young girl from Framlingham could make her mark on the competitive Fashion Week Haute Couture runways of Paris. Her lineage was not well known. She didn’t go around telling everyone she came from a long line of Tailleurs de Robes.  Maybe she should! Her ancestors had dressed the Kings and Queens of France, but that was a long time ago.  She had a lot to prove, to herself at least.

As the light hit what seemed like thousands of hand beaded Swarovski crystals, she knew, without a shadow of doubt – this would do it. The who’s who of the fashion industry were about to sit up and take notice. Her show stopper would be the talk of town. Wilton wouldn’t like that one bit.

        I did a photo writers prompt (link below) the other day and just had to keep writing as well. I am now over 5000 words in and cannot wait to see where it leads me. (unpublished as of right now as I want to finish it first) So good luck to you.
