I got to buy some items from a theatre company today and there wasn't much in the way of vintage clothing, but I did find these treasures.
Most exciting was this carpet bag. I've wanted one for years but the Victorian ones are rare and usually very expensive. I'll name her "Jane" after Jane Marple.
Quality cotton Victorian costume, I couldn't pass it up, but need somewhere to wear it. Reminds me so much of Lark Rise to Candleford.
1940s uniform, I think it's nurses, but could possibly be waitress? Probably nurse. It buttons and snaps up the front, and look at that Peter Pan collar! Will need some cleaning but it's just darling.
48 star American flag. I passed it up, but kept thinking about it after leaving so we went back for it! It's beautifully thin and faded, and I'll be patching up a few more places this week. But it's huge! Will make a great wall hanging.
Last but not least a little 1940s dress for my nine year old cousin Pearl. She loved it, so after I mend it a bit I'm sure she'll rock it.
