$ 36.00Stunning sequined sweater in a bigger size. Ivory wool, covered in sequins, with a couple of cutwork areas embroidered in teal blue. Just perfect for Holiday parties! 100% wool but the not very itchy kind and..tah dah!...its fully lined so its easy to wear. This would look so cute with some skinny jeans and tall boots or heels. Label reads: Danny Ling &Co, Made in Hong Kong.
$ 69.00Stunning cocktail party wiggle dress from the 1960s. Amazing color and so soft! Satin, with black plastic button front, two pockets and applique details. Side zipper ( not metal) as well as the buttons down the front makes it really easy to get into. This is a larger size ( I've pinned it to fit the dress form).
$ 69.00Beautiful lemon yellow 60s maxi dress. Would be darling shortened! Has a matching tie belt. Taffeta with a slight floral pattern to the fabric. The skirt is fully lined.
$ 24.00I love the lavender-ey pink color of this pretty party dress. Its circa 1950s or early 60s. Would have had a little bolero jacket or top over the bodice and the hooks for that are still there. Its too small for my dress form by a bit so it's pinned in back but the zipper works great. This is an opaque layer of acetate or rayon with a sheer chiffon that feels like a poly maybe over the top. Full skirt but not a full circle, would be great with a crinoline, which I have not shown it with here. Sleeveless, wide waistband with a pellon lining to help it hold its shape. Zipper in the back. No label. Please see condition below as it has some issues. Small size, I'd say. Or extra small.
$ 20.00Pretty peacock blue maxi dress form the 60s. Chiffon over a satin lining which is itself lined in something that feels like a light rayon or possibly silk blend. Sleeveless, higher scooped neck and slightly lower back. Buttons up the back. There is a zipper up the back on the lining and then little buttons up the back on the chiffon. In the photo the zipper on the lining is undone. No label. Small to medium I'd say. Please see condition below.
Good vintage condition. The satin layer is actually in great condition, the only thing I've been able to spot on that is a faint watermark on the skirt and some minor color fade and a small amount ( maybe an inch long) of disintegration in the armpits. One could open up those armpits and make them a little bigger, cutting out the damaged bit completely. The chiffon is another story unfortunately. Its falling apart in several places, and the rest has faded areas. I think I'd just remove it entirely and maybe recycle the good parts of it for something else. The satin in this would make a lovely dress on its own. Also, the zipper on this dress needs to be repaired. Priced accordingly and why its in my Scratch and Dent section and as is.
Measurements when lying flat. Doubled at bust and waist.
Armpit to armpit across bust: 35"
Shoulder to Waist: 16"
Shoulder to bottom hem: 57"

$ 85.00This is the most interesting piece. From the 50s or probably 60s. I believe its a jacket but it's tailored like a blouse. It could probably be worn as a blouse actually. Rounded bottom hems, gathered blousey cuffs at the end of the long sleeves, and just an all round blousey feel. The color is the most beautiful camel, wool. Fully lined in peach acetate. Two labels, one reads: Amelia Gray Beverly Hills, California, and the other reads: Ernst Strauss & Schnell Sports. Medium to large sized I'd say.

$ 90.00 - Sold OutFantastic late 1950s possibly early 60s romper playsuit in a light teal-ish blue. It is too large for dress form so I've pinned it for the photos. Inner bullet bra support, inner panty, shoulder straps which are adjustable to 3 different lengths via buttons inside the top and can be worn straight as I've shown or crisscrossed in back. The fabric is textured in such a way as too imitate waves, which is kinda cool. There is a tie belt attached to the center back. I've shown it tied in most photos but then left it hanging in the last. Smocking on either side at the waist. Back metal zipper with a extra hook and eye at the top, and fully lined in white cotton. Outside feels like cotton too. Definitely a larger size. No label but you can see where there was one. That said, this is very, very similar to a Catalina playsuit I had in the shop at one time, so it could be Catalina. That's just a suspicion though, I've nothing to back that up.

$ 24.00This top totally makes me think of the Beatles, and then of a Victorian dame. It really ahs elements of both classic looks. Slightly leg-o-muffin sleeves with a little pouf at the shoulders, and then tightly cuffed wrists, with fabric covered buttons. The same buttons run all down the front of the blouse but off center, right up the to Nehru collar. In the photos this looks very milk chocolate brown, and it is but there is a very definite olive green cast to it as well. Bear that in mind please. Feels like a crepe. Label reads: Jo Matthews, and it says its a size 10 but please check the measurements as vintage sizes are not the same as modern sizes.

It still has about 3/4 of the powder still inside it from what I can see ( its a narrow opening so hard to tell exactly. Originally held 4oz. What a fantastic display piece in a vintage bathroom!

$ 30.00Darling dress in a patchwork print of primary colors. Really cute ivory lace ruffles. So cute. And a hip pocket. Sleeveless spaghetti straps. Would be a cute maternity dress too for the earlier months, but I like it as a regular dress with some jeans and sandals, maybe a belt. Label says "Dalisay's ". Probably about a medium, its meant to be free fitting, feels like a cotton to me, or perhaps a blend.

$ 74.00 - Sold OutCharming traditional trachten Austrian Overdress. This is a barkcloth bodice in and skirt in bright blue with a floral pattern in pinks, reds marigold and green. Lined in a sweet white swiss dot fabric. Up the front of the bodice here is a larger, denser version of the same pattern. Corset style bodice, slightly full skirt. Medium to Larger size. No label. I suspect this is actually an older dress that was reworked at some point. The zipper up the front just seems incongruous with the rest of it and some of the constructions just seems to be from different eras. That said, I don't see signs of there having been, for example, lacing up the front instead of the metal zipper, so I won't swear to it, its just my theory.
$ 8.00Adorable knit ivory baby mitten with a clown face applique and "Babes in Toyland" written on them. From the 1960s movie.
