Washer Woman Plays Dress Ups

I have been washing and washing and washing all my Vintage clothes and still have heaps to go but its so nice to see them all hanging together.This is a bit of my collection that I have washed so far (other than the leather gear  )

                                           Must  do a another youtube video again to share all these.
                                               More to show soon as they are all washed.
                                                    A couple of my favourite nighties



                                              An 80s lace dress I had to buy $2 doesnt quite  do up tho

Miss 8 was given free reign to take pics of me in my Gerry Shaw dress.
I bought this outfit a few months back when I was sick with kidney stones and I was all bloated This was my 1st retry since then and even LL(lovely Laura) liked it on me even tho she thinks checks should only stay on tablecloths,

                                               
                                                        LL took this one
                               

Gerry Shaw I found out is an expensive brand as you can see.I got my oufit for $13.95 b4 I knew who he was.,I just liked the Rockabilly look of it.

                                 Miss 8 at it again. and I should have tidied my room b4 pics oops.
                                            Have a box of goodies to share sometime soon.

Happy treasure hunting and Creative Crafting .GeI always look forward to my daily blog reading to see  what my blogging buddies have found and made.

Wonderful check dress! Maybe it is inexpensive, but it looks like a million on you. Shocking 80's dress! Lol! People might think you have *gasp* legs! I remember those lace numbers. We used to sling a belt on them and tie our hair up in kerchiefs Rosie the Riveter style. Nighties are fun, though I have a collection of t-shirts I wear...hockey t-shirts. TWN

I'd love to have a rummage through your rails, there's a black dress with a flouncy pink patterned sleeve that looks just up my street.
Love your hair worn up, very pretty lady. xxx

I never knew Gerry Shaw did gingham!! I've had a few of his velvet drawstring numbers in my younger days. His dresses usually retail around $300-$400 I think. Good job on the washing, I'd like to see more of your collection.xx.
