been shopping again :oops:

i was sold this as original 30s and although i know virtually nothing about the era i’m inclined to believe it, what do you reckon? any experts out there?

whatever it turns out to be i can’t get enough of this print, it’s got all my best colours, it has a wonderful drape (rayon) and a subtle sheen. condition is as new. can you imagine how nervous i’m going to be cutting into it? :D

i’d love to make a dress, it’s wonderfully swishy. but there’s not quite 3 yards (36″ wide) so it’ll have to be a blouse, with gathery bits. trouble is that then entails making skirts/trousers to wear it with… it’s a slippery slope :shock:
