Many dresses have already gone up to the shop, and I haven't finished washing it all yet (some pieces require 3 or 4 washes plus *energetic* stain removal) but I'm dying to show you some!
1930s floral linen tea dress with side snap closure, self belt and speckled bakelite buttons.
While its not to my taste personally I love it for the fine sewing skills it displays and its immaculate condition.
1940s/50s shirtwaister, I love the scalloping along the bodice and pockets.
1930s butter-yellow dress with nylon lace bodice panel, this is a heavy but super-soft cotton and is so tactile, I wish I could give you a feel test!
The soft self belt has this fantastic carved bakelite buckle..how could I resist?!
1930s crepe and lace dress, again in stunning condition...a rarity for Australia.
Look at the delicate shirring on the sleeves!
1950s cotton plaid dress with lace-edged collar and pussy bow.
Gorgeous 40s dress with such an unusual print for the era.
absolutely beautiful pockets, classic 40s styling
No-ones bum would ever look big in this!!
On another note, I've been without internet for the past few days (2 deaths in one week!) and am just catching up on blogs now so will be 'seeing' you all soon.xx.
