Sneak preview of upcoming vintage

Yeah! I made a great vintage purchase today, the first good one in a few kind of vintage-dry months. I was getting low on dresses at the website, but now I'll be able to replenish the stock! There were about 140 pieces in the lot, besides day, dressy and black dressses, there were a few coats and jackets, lingerie, hats, purses, 4 unused 1940s patterns with a sz38 bust (!) and other little things.
Here is a sneak peek at some of the dresses. They're just quick photos taken on the rack. The clothing is airing out and waiting to be cleaned right now. I was already working on hats and slips for the next update, and I had some coats already pulled to work on too, so you may not see anything from this lot in the next update. Well, maybe just a few if I can get to them. There are several sparkley dresses, perfect for the upcoming holidays and some great black evening dresses too. First below are two tulle gowns, then 3 sparkley gowns. Next is a Blue Cheongsam and a pink satin dress.





Some of the day dresses are kind of Summery, so you won't see those right away. But there are two knit dresses that will be great for the Fall. There were 3 Lilly Pulitzers, a cute anchor pocket Swirl and a Claire McCardell (off course that is the darkest dress in the photo to the left here)


Well, I had to keep a few little goodies for myself right? I kept a pale green rayon lingerie top, a 1937 McCalls pattern magazine, a great 1903 embroidery book that has the previous owner's embroidery floss tucked in between the pages, a pretty floral hanger and 2 wooden purse handles just begging me to choose some great fabric for them.



Fun! I love sorting through vintage clothing. Plus a fresh buy makes me more enthusiastic while I work on the items.
