    Since persons have, for a long while, shared photos of neither antique nor vintage women's clothing, I should like to briefly enliven the latent category.

    The emerald-green knitted frock—a seven-dollar find—was awaiting my arrival. As I was driving through a residential area, leaving an antiques faire, I saw, through my peripheral vision, its beckoning to me. The Irish in me, of course, succumbed to the sight. The gregarious fellow, by whom the dress was sold, shared with me the story behind his acquiring the lovely frock: he, within twenty miles of his property, located it in a dilapidated, abandoned house. As the dress was not frowsy, I felt the faintest bit reassured—upon arriving home, though, I celeritously laundered the garment!

    On eBay, after a family sojourn in Disneyland, the helm of a search query led me to uncharted territory: my mariner jumper. Infrequently, I locate older nautical-style garments, as most sailor-inspired pieces are cotton middies, modern reproductions, or coordinated wartime habiliment. This jumper, I believe, comprises jersey wool, and was hand-knitted by a sedulous seamstress!

      Both pieces are lovely and really evoke the '30s when fabrics were rich and clothing so well made

      I love watching Classic movies to see the jewelry and yes, the clothes! The garments the women wore in the 40’s makes one envious to go back in time when women dressed like ladies (don’t slam me). It’s true, matching hats, never leaving the house without gloves, etc. I had quite a few antique garments in my day, how I wish I still had them! Seersucker dresses in floral designs, long tweed coat with huge cuffs and massive carved buttons. My favorite was a red gown with tiny turquoise seed beads sewn all over the bodice and down the sleeves, that ended in a point! Even my Senior picture was taken in an antique seersucker floral dress.
      Ok, I have said enough! Take good care of these treasures and wear them in good health!
