Here it is Saturday and snowing again!! I am glad I planned to stay home today but now I want to get out in the snow , I will after this post.
I had a pleasant surprise from an old friend who moved away a few years ago. She still lives in Missouri however we don't see each other that often. She was my running partner , we hit every antique mall in Missouri I do believe. I am downsizing my things and she bought several items from me , made us both happy.
I was going through my one pile of old linens and tablecloths and remember a dress I seen in one of my Fashion books, anyway a dress looked just like one of my cotton tablecloths anyway it looked similar to me
These tablecloths are heavy not like a delicate tablecloth. I have a couple delicate tablecloths that I would love to cut up to make a lace tunic and I am going to do that soon as I can stay home long enough to sew. I have to be in the mood and have everything ready ahead of time to sew.
The book FASHION is fabulous it has clothing from early 1800 which I Love textile and apparel studies
Look at these ladies corset.The first one is dated 1580-1600 French, described iron with scroll motif
The left corset 1760 the right one dates early 18th century, the middle child's mid 18th century
This is same tablecloth
