I've been very naughty this weekend, in addition to a jumble sale and a car boot sale yesterday I also squeezed in a quick trawl of the local charity shops on the way back from the council swimming baths on Friday morning. Here's what I got:
A 1960's Lime and turquoise glazed cotton shift dress for £4.20 from the British Heart Foundation and a vintage pink wool cardi for £1.95 from the local Children's Hospice shop.
Here's living proof that you should disregard any sizing labels on old clothing. I'm a UK size 8 and these vintage size 16's probably fit me better than a lot of modern stuff.
Aren't vintage clothing labels just gorgeous? Empire Made? I wonder which corner of the British Empire this cardi was made in.
This dress is pristine with the cardboard factory tag still attached to the inside seam. Short fitting? I'm just under 5 foot 5" and it looks fine to me.
A lot of people will only consider clothes with their size printed on the label. Think outside the box and try everything on.
