We are getting ready for the ‘ That’s My Style ‘ Vintage Clothing Sale being held in conjunction with the Fiberfest show at the Almonte Arena being held on Sept. 12th and 13th 2015.  Almonte is just 30 minutes west of the city of Ottawa Ontario.

I will be bringing vintage accessories like hats, purses, gloves, and the  orange vinyl hat carrier shown in the photo.   I also have a wide assortment of vintage buttons and some nice pieces of jewellery, vintage linens, furs and lots more.  There will be tons of items to browse through.  Mark the date on your calendar and check back to my blog for more photos of vintage items that will be for sale at the show.

Below is the online site address for the Mississippi Valley Textile Museum which is hosting the show.  Read about all the fiber arts that will be at the show as well.

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

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!!
