The Cloth Shop


The Cloth Shop was a great find in Dublin. A beautiful range of fabric types, prints and other habby. 

I'm always a fan of Liberty prints and loved the animal one! 

If you are not near Dublin any time soon you can buy online. The lovely lady mentioned she has lots of Australian customers!

Vintage Portraits


I couldn't go past these vintage portraits at a 
street market in a small Scottish town. 

I love the facial expressions, 
clothing and hair styles and poses. 

Andy the man I bought them from said they 
were all from the same album, 
but no names on the back. 

It looks like they were a well to do family!

Victoria and Albert


One of my favorite places to visit when in London. 

These pics are from the permanent collection as no photos allowed from the Bridal and Italian fashion exhibitions that were on. 

It was a big day of fashion with fitting in the three exhibitions on. I might have been, dare i say a bit fashioned out by the end of the day.
Disgraceful I know!

1940's War Time Dress


I made this Retro Butterick 1946's (B5281) dress pattern for a 1940's war time murder mystery party! I just happened to have a lovely dark green fabric just like in the envelope pic. 

It was a time consuming dress. With cute little asymmetrical details, fully lined and lots of hand stitching. 

I found a perfect hat on e-bay to complete the outfit. It was a winning assemble as I guessed Agent Scott's secret identity!

Vintage Post Cards


I found these colorful 1920's hand painted photo post cards at Portabello Market in London.

I love the writing on the back,
 Winnie and Dolores what great names!
