Just a quick post, Victorian litle girls with kitten, Late 1890 Girls Dress, Portrait of a beautifully dressed woman.

     5-16-2012 Making repairs to my blog. Lots of images will need to be reposted
Thursday afternoon was a beautiful day because of the sunshine and I went to my little shop. It was such a treat to visit with some of the gals.My drawer was not overflowing with new button donations, but there are some pretty ones. Someone loved fabric covered buttons and saved them off their vintage clothing. Now I wonder what they were going to sew them on next?  


Luscious fancy Edwardian dress.
 Love this pretty white dress!!! Samantha, the American Girl doll from the same period  needs this dress. I have an antique baby dress that  has beautiful white work or eyelet that would be perfect. Much of it is not in the best condition but it is still very hard to cut. Wonder who was the sweet baby it was made for.
Thank you for stopping by. Have a lovely Sunday, Louise

Louise, when I had my Portrait Studio..I collected white Victorian clothing both for woman and children,and used them in my Portraits when the customer chose to do that.
I could not part with most of them even afer I had to retire due to developing Fibromyalgia.
I have them still,even moving here to Texas from Indiana..that is how "possessed" ( snicker) I am about that Era of clothing.
I would SO LOVE to own one of the last white dresses shown here..with the "leg of mutton" sleeves.
