I've been working on the same etsy update for the past week... I think I'm eternally slow and behind in everything. I'll hopefully have 8 heartbreakingly beautiful things up tonight though. I know that's a tall glass to fill, but I promise this stuff's gooood. I want to keep it all but instead I've just taken 3x the amount of photos I actually need.



Above you have a practically perfect lace 1920s drop waist dress. And below a late 1940s Henry Rosenfeld. I'm slightly obsessed with everything about it. I couldn't stop taking photos in it... It's moved along through the years so elegantly.

Tomorrow I'm making myself sew until my fingers stop working. I have 15 or so printed cotton dresses that need so much stitching and if I keep working at this pace then I'm going to have them up by Christmas. Speaking of - is there anyone who might be interested in potentially working for store credit tomorrow? Nimble and skillful hand sewing fingers or a portable sewing machine is a must! (I'm unfortunately without the later and I know that I should get a sewing machine, I know - I know... but I'd just rather buy dresses and frilly things instead...) If you're potentially interested email me!

GORGEOUS! I'd take my time too. I'm VERY INTERESTED in the 1940s Henry Rosenfeld. If you're up for it, could you convo me the measurements and price? If not, I guess I can just stalk your shop.

Oh dear...I look forward to 1385 shop updates more than anything else!!!! I had bad luck when I went into the city vintage shopping a couple weeks ago, but comforted myself knowing you had lots of new things coming to 1385! haha I'm most excited for those cotton dresses---my favorite! And that 1920s dress is just about the most beautiful thing I've ever seen!

Hi! I'd love to help with sewing, just for the practice/experience. Unfortunately, I'm pretty beginner as far as sewing goes. Wish I could help, though!
