Love all those gorgeous fabrics. I would love to embroider a whole piece of fabric just to experience the feel of it in my hands!

Beautiful dresses.
It is always the mystery and stories behind the garments that intrigue me.
What special occasion they were made or bought for, the fact they were loved and cherished and was it worn by someone famous or just a simple housewife sharing a dream for a moment in time...

About half my wardrobe is now vintage clothing. I love wearing something that has been softened with wear and has been beautifully constructed from natural fabrics. Often they are completely hand-stitched, quite staggering work, which fills you with wonder at the skill of those hands which toiled to create them. And the joy of wearing vintage is knowing that no-one else will have the same and not knowing what you'll find next.

All this color, Lynn. I did a double-take. Even you header and title are different. Viva la Difference.
