Prom Dress for sale

 I have decided to sale this wonderful dreamy prom dress , hoping some girl will actually  wear it this year for prom, or some lady wear it to a Ball or party
However if your a dress collector this is the one to add to your collection also.

I was thinking of  Rachel Ashwell and all her beautiful dresses , I am sure she ask more than $100 for a dresses

This is a strapless sweetheart top as seen in the picture, very good condition, no tears or stains. I think it's a 1960's dress


On the inside label it says Made in USA , size 9/10, However I am sure today's sizes it's a maybe size 6. The bust is 34-35 the waist 26 and it's 52 inches long. I didn't measure real careful just a quick measurement so if your really interested i'll go measure again , and get an accurate measurement , which I should have done first place but I'm always in a hurry to get to the next job or someplace 

This is the back of the dress with a sweet silk ribbon down the back

This top looks like a sweet cupcake

She is not standing in the prettiest spot in the studio but light is very limited here on these cloudy days 


This is a picture I took for the Dress Form Ball we attended 
I had the dress over a vintage hoop skirt

In my last post I showed you my vintage rosaries , well here is where they hang down from a chandelier over one of my work tables in the studio, among lots of other things I like to look at on a daily pace for inspiration.
I missed a post on a blog where they were showing their messy studios's so this is an after thought , which would have fit right in LOL

And another bunch old treasures all setting on top of my TV , I had a 36 inch glass top for a table and using it on my TV so I can get more treasures setting there. My african  violet is blooming, always reminds me of my Grandmother, she always had african  violets . Also here sets my redressed lady in her Downton Abby outfit
I leave my wire tree up year round with mt vintage Santas' on it , there is also a lot of cookie cutters on it 

Well i'm off to work so we'll talk later . Today is my friend Jo's Birthday
