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!!


Vintage Designer Dresses, R.E.O. & Feminette Models Ltd.

This is a preview of what I will have available for sale at the Annual Almonte Vintage Clothing Sale in September this year.  There will be about 20 vendors of clothing and accessories for a two day show. We will have clothing and fashion accessories like jewelery, vintage silk scarves, hats, shoes, belts, ties, furs, buttons, gloves, purses and anything else you could possibly want in vintage fashion.  Check back on this site towards the end of August and I will post the details of the date and time and place.

The black Polka Dot dress is a R.E.O. Originals probably ca. 1970’s but it looks like something right out of the 50’s.  Extremely well made and very detailed. Nice full pleated skirt.  My photo doesn’t do it justice.

The long multi coloured (mostly pinks) floral gown is a 1960’s number from Feminette Models Ltd.  The material has a bit of stretch and is slightly textured.  This designer piece is from London, England.

The jazzy green dress with the layered ruffles is a soft light weight cotton and is lined with cotton as well.  Made by Sabby Jones Clothing. It is hard to date this piece and I couldn’t find out anything about the designer.  I am not sure about the date of this one but the styling indicates the 70’s or 80’s to me.

The cute pink lace dress is surely from the 50’s or early 60’s. The designer is Monique of New York.  The close up of the dress shows the nice lace details.  It is in great condition for its age.

Prices are to be determined, but most of my vintage dresses will range from $ 35 to $75.

I will also have available some 1950’s dresses and skirts, sewn recently using original 1950’s patterns When possible I have used vintage materials that I have collected over the years.  I will post some photos of these outfits when they are completed.

Please note all these dresses are now SOLD except for the polka dot one.
