Another dress...





Well - I found another photo of my dressform - this time with a vintage undergarment, though I don't know how you could keep something so wonderful covered up! I suppose just knowing you were wearing such yummy goodness might have been enough. Maybe it's a nightgown! Again, this is something worn by my grandmother or one of my great-grandmothers. The photos aren't fantastic but you get the idea! The dressform is a size 8 and the dresses I have just barely squeeze on the form! Oh, and yes, I have wonderful stories of my grandma. She was born in 1908 and lived until she was 96! Oh, the stories! Perhaps I will share some in future posts!

This is one of the most fabulous vintage dresses I've seen. I doubt it was an undergarment tho. Looks like a tea dress or graduation dress. It is TDF. How special that it was in the family.
Gasp!! That lace is just phenomenal.

The dress is perfect. I love those kinds with the pintucks and eyelet and lace!

My aunt had a dress form and well, it was really BIG. with clips so it was adjustable too. I don't have it, but well, it was bigger than me.
