Vintage Lady Utex 1970’s Hippie Paisley Boho Style Coat

16 Oct

paisley coat 3

This was a ‘Had to Have’ item when I came across it in an antique store in a small town recently.  The moment I laid eyes on it, the memories flooded back.  I had one that had a white background and similar paisley decorations in turquoise and reds.  My younger sister, who kindly modelled the coat in the photo, inherited the coat from me back in the 70’s.    We both had  strong reactions and a sense of ‘deja vu’ when we saw the coat and luckily for my sister, it fit her.  I was not so lucky.

The coat is in excellent vintage condition, with very little apparent wear.  The label says: Lady Utex – The Aristocrat of Casual Fashion – Made in Canada. The coat is lined with a gold coloured satin and has a lined attached hood. The fabric has a soft, velvety feel to it.

I will be bringing the coat and some other vintage clothes to the Ottawa Antique Show at Carleton University Fieldhouse on Oct 25th and 26th 2014. Drop by my booth and try it on and be transported back in time.

Please note this coat is now SOLD!!!

8 Oct

Thanks to my sister who modelled this dress for me.   The dress was made using a 1950’s Simplicity Pattern and I used vintage fabric that I found at an estate sale.  Sling back shoes, gloves, faux pearls, small beaded purse and a 1950’s pancake style straw hat complete the vintage look. A crinoline gives the dress fullness.

The dress is priced at $55.

Hand made crinolines are priced at $25

Check out our booth at the Carleton Fieldhouse Antique Show this Oct 25th and 26th, 2014, where this dress and other hand made outfits using vintage fabrics will be for sale. I will also have some ready made vintage clothes, purses, hats and gloves.

Please note this item is SOLD!!

Polka Dotted Skirt and Stretch Top by Simplicity ca 1950’s.

8 Oct

polka dot 1

Thanks to my sister for modelling this outfit for me.  I made it using a 1950’s Simplicity pattern for a gathered skirt and pullover stretch top, with crinoline underneath to give added fullness.  She is wearing vintage sling back shoes and cotton wrist gloves to complete the ensemble.

This skirt sold to a lovely young woman at the Vintage Clothing Sale in Almonte in Sept.

Hopefully I will be able to whip up more vintage clothing for an upcoming sale in October at Carleton University Fieldhouse Antique Show  on Oct. 25th and 26th.  I will have some readymade vintage outfits for sale as well as hand made ones.  I use vintage fabric whenever possible for a more authentic look and feel.

Please note the outfit is now SOLD!!

 

Lily Bet Mid 20th Century Box Style Purse

29 Aug

IMG_8422

Purse has original label inside which says ‘designed by Lily-Bet, Filbert Imports of the Palm Beaches’. Probably from the mid 20th century as these styles of purses were quite fashionable at that time.

The interior is nicely done in a paisley material and the lid has an oval mirror on the inside surrounded by gold coloured braid.  The handle is made of amber coloured lucite and brass coloured fittings.  The exterior is covered in a light gray vinyl, decorated with embroidered roses and butterflies which appear to be glued to the surface and then touches of gold painted leaves surround the flowers.   Overall the purse is in nice clean condition.

The purse is about 8″ in length and 4″ in depth and almost 5″ high.

Please note this item is no longer available. Thank you.
