Dating Vintage

We bought an interesting dress last week. Interesting not because it is lovely, but because dating it was more important than I thought.

We are often asked how we date things especially clothing. So we thought we would show you one of our latest finds.

It’s a lovely dusky pink dress which looks very 1940s. The style, the way the fabric drapes, in fact the fabric feels very 1940s.

Then at second glass there are tell-tale


I love
