All dressed up & ready to go

We are busy getting ready for next weeks Twinwood Festival here in Bedfordshire. It is a 1940s/50s festival so we have been busy getting our frocks ready.

Here are just a few we will be taking to sell. We have prom dresses, swing dresses, day dresses and wiggle dresses. Some are hand made and some have great labels such as Selfridges and Horrockses. We have sexy, we have pretty, we have brights. We are all dressed up and ready to go!
