    Green! One of my favorite colors, ya know why? It just looks rich and means money to me :)

    This could be from the 40's to 50's, what's your guess? Maybe the zipper pull gives it away, hmmm, this color was popular in the 60's wasn't it?

    I thought it was hand made, in fact, I was told by the makers son yet when I saw the neck area, it made me wonder-then I remembered that women did put tags of their own there. So yes, the lady did make it herself and did a great job at it.

    It's a 2 piece Linen Dress and very sharp w/great detail in person. The little Jacket buttons up nicely with same material buttons, I just wanted you all to see the color contrast. Also wondering if all that makes the value a bit higher??? I have a fab Dark Green Velvet Handbag by Ideal. It matches perfectly and when I find it, I'll post it for you to see. Every time I look up that handbag, I get toys, I guess because of the name "Ideal"???

    It does fit me well but right now I've been having a hard time with the heat and the lining makes me wayyy to hot! It's about a size 6, a little too big for a 4 and that's really what I wear. (except in the winter and I would be too cold in the winter for it...lol, I just can't win with it.

    Thanks for looking!

      I think this is 1950's. And in the 50's there were many dressmakers who created custom garments like this. I love it.
    2. valentino97 valentino97, 7 years ago
      Green is my favorite too - color of grass, trees and yes the dollar bills.
    3. shareurpassion shareurpassion, 7 years ago
      LOL!!! Sure is! Yea, 50's it is then, that was always my first thought! Thanks for the kind words and love!

      I put together some more turquoise jewelry today, still need work but I'll post the progress if I can. Now that will make it Navajo, Zuni & Cherokee (me), but I'm like the white buffalo, blonde...lol! (Only 1/2 Cherokee).

      Hi Shareurpassion, your half Cherokee! How cool is that!! & so is this dress, love it
    5. shareurpassion shareurpassion, 7 years ago

    6. shareurpassion shareurpassion, 7 years ago
      Thank you Vet for the love, always appreciated!

      Very COOL!

      So lovely! I wish it was mine. Stunning!
    9. Elisabethan Elisabethan, 7 years ago
      I've had a look threw your posts and feel that I think we see somewhat the same in our pieces. Can't describe it better.

      Lots of good seamstresses back then, and the idea of a contrast in lining was pretty common.
      Looks great yeah?
      Nicely made and possibly by a "local" dressmaker who made bespoke clothing for clients and had her own label. Pity it's gone!

      No wonder you get cold! Size 4? Meat needed!!!

      Wooow, I can imagine the hairdo matching this dress! :)

      Simply elegant!!!

      Oh I do love this and one of my miniature mannequins would look beautiful in it :-) Looks so Grace Kelly :-) and the colors are perfect !
    13. valentino97 valentino97, 7 years ago
      Yes - agreeing w/id - late 50's or early 60's. Madmen feel! And half Cherokee, size 4??? You must be gorgeous! As for green. My next parakeet is going to be that dollar bill green and his full name will be JCPenney (James CASH Penney) but I'll call him Cash. I can't buy him yet. My experience has been 3 parakeets creates a pecking order problem. I also love the name Champion as in Clyde Champion Barrow. What a name that was!

      Elisabethan, I just did the same...so ironic! Thank you for the lovely coment and love! :)
    15. shareurpassion shareurpassion, 7 years ago
      racer, agree, it used to be less expensive to "make it yourself", not now. It's too bad that in this "hurry up world" we have lost many things!

      LMAO- you're right about the size and cold lol meat needed - all my life!!! I couldn't gain weight if you paid me!!! About a month after my 1st kid, I was right back in a size 3, and not happy about that! Ahhh, so I have gained weight over the years...LMAO!!! (What can I say)? :)
    16. shareurpassion shareurpassion, 7 years ago
      Thank you for the nice comment austro, maybe I'll go to the hair dresser, get the proper style done and post a pic with it on...ehhh, not!!! :)
    17. shareurpassion shareurpassion, 7 years ago
      LMAO A mini Mani??? haha that's a good one Marty! Thanks for looking!
    18. shareurpassion shareurpassion, 7 years ago
      Thank you for the love and pleasant comment IDC, I agree 100%.
    19. shareurpassion shareurpassion, 7 years ago
      Thank you val! And about the gorgeous part, nah, I wish! Just regular ol' me!!! And as for the birds (scuze the pun), a must have would be a female named Bonnie, right?!

      We used to have 55gal fish tank, Bonnie & Clyde-Ricky and Lucy - Mickey and Mini and on and on, not to forget Cholo and Chola lol...We named them all!
      Thanks, have a good one!
