I took these last week but didn't upload them because I wasn't sure about them. However my absence is mostly due to revision and trying/attempting to/failing to meet coursework deadlines! I got this dress in Bridport for £10 from a warehouse vintage/antique shop a few weeks ago and I don't think these pictures do it justice. I might take some more in it and add them here. It fits perfectly and it has a weird back story which is interesting. There was a piece of paper stitched into the lining with my textiles teachers' full name handwritten (in her handwriting) on it. It freaked me out because I bought this dress 2 hours away from where I live/where my school is! Apparently it was bought from my teacher's church sale by a dealer and belonged to one of the congregation there. My textiles teacher now says she'll bring in suitcases of vintage clothing for me to take anything I want from! She offloads lace to me already but this is a whole new level of awesome. I don't know whether to keep it though because it isn't as practical as it could be, but it is such beautiful colours OOS OOS OOS.
I did this at the beginning of April when the first odd days of spring were appearing and I was influenced by 'subtle psychedelia'. I bought the dress about then too!
