It's a southern hemisphere spring sale!

I have been going through my wardrobe and my overflow wardrobe in Little Miss A's room and have started selecting dresses I haven't worn for a long time.

I've decided to sell them on Etsy for, in most cases a lot less than I bought them for.

Take a look and see if there is anything you like.

Embroider my world

Well I have come back to post and it took a while, the camera broke and so I have been thinking whether it was worth posting with photos from my iPhone, what is the point of this blog? (I have a very short attention span) and getting the time to post.

But hey! I am back because I have really enjoyed the correspondence from other bloggers, really lovely people, that enjoy vintage clothes, the history and the dresses, aaah the dresses, I don't want to count my growing collection. I don't claim to be an expert but I just love vintage dresses and the history that comes with a piece of clothing that has been pre-loved and is now in my precious hands to enjoy and wear with a certain sense of style? hmmm that is questionable.

So while I have been away I have been accumulating a few more precious items and thankfully the weather has been looking up - out come the summer dresses and pasty, white, freckly legs.

This little beauty I purchased from Blythehopesvintage I just couldn't pass up these amazing pockets and their embroidery, I took the hem down to its original length and it is one of my favourite dresses.Link

Excuse the smudges on the mirror, Little Miss A can't resist placing her hands all over them and I can't be bothered keeping up with her busy hands.
