Looking for vintage designer clothes?  Be sure to attend the Ottawa Vintage Clothing Show this Sunday, November 3rd, 2019 from 10 am to 5 pm at the Carleton University Fieldhouse on Bronson Ave., Ottawa, Ontario.

We will be set up at booth 305, where you will find vintage lingerie, hats, purses, furs, clothing, and jewellery.

Look for these ‘fab finds’ in my booth:  Designer pieces by Yves Saint Laurent, Nina Ricci, Christian Dior, Bloomingdale’s, Simon Chang and some classic 1950’s and 60’s pieces.  Also a good assortment of vintage sweaters in cashmere, lambs wool, wool and angora.

Vintage jewellery by Monet, Sherman, Continental, Coro, Weiss, Stella & Dot, Duri, and many more mid century designers. I have a nice collection of Celtic brooches and shawl pins as well as some terrific rhinestone pieces and lots of pretty clip on earrings, shoe clips and fur clips, brass lipstick holders from the fifties, evening gloves and beaded purses, some sterling and gold rings.

For the men I have a good selection of silk ties, some great hats and shirts including an assortment of Hawaiin shirts, a fabulous wool coat and some vintage cufflinks.

Plenty of great one of a kind pieces and unique items will be on display in my booth so don’t miss out, come early!!  #ottawavintageclothingshow @ottawavintageclothingshow

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!!
