sorry these pictures are a bit dodgy, camera wasn't focusing very well
Lee, the chap that runs it with his partner was charming and so passionate about all things vintage. He spent ages chatting with a couple about the dancing of the old days and finding videos for them to watch. He had a parcel of new stock waiting to be opened, he said he was as excited to open that, as I had been when I walked in through the door - what a wonderful job he has.
I spent a long time mooching around, and then a long time trying on dresses, which was such a pleasure, and this is what I came home with.
It needs a belt, and a little repair and alteration, and I'll make a little something to cover my shoulders, but it'll be just perfect for the occasion I'm going to next year.
I love the colours, I'm on the look out for the perfect red to complement it now.
As if one dress wasn't enough I popped into 'What the Butler Wore' on the same street and bought this one. Now don't laugh. This needs much more alterations, as it is is just a little too much.
I'm going to shorten it so it finishes just below the knee (keeping the ruffle), I'm not sure about the sleeves yet, and the blingy buckle - also not too sure - though Missy Big thinks this is the best bit!
So I came home very happy. And these were my Liberty fabric bargains. What more can a girl ask for? Another day out I'm thinking...
Pop over to Her Library Adventures for more vintage finds.
