Extraordinary and unique with a wealth of history straight from the horses mouth. A lady in her 90s brought this to our shop. She told us that two of her aunts were amazing seamstresses and made their own clothes back in the day and this garment is an example of their incredible work. The Pom Pom button, fluted edges of the inside pocket and the hand worked button loops are just some of its fabulous features, but by far is the interlining between the fabric and the lining. This part of the garment is a collection of pieces of old cloth take.from old dresses. This, the lady explained, was because fabric was difficult to come by at that time. Although this seems at odds with the fabulous workmanship, we feel that it enhances the mystique of its provenance. A once in a lifetime opportunity to own a piece of history.
