I took the opportunity to go today and I came away with the most beautiful gleaming white lace tablecloth, ( of course , I forgot to take a picture but looks a lot like this!) and I gave it to my sister.
I also scored this home made, Jade wool suit.
|It's a lot more green in the flesh (wool)|
|waistband, not I suspect, meant to be seen on a blog!|
|Liking these buttonholes|
|Jacket facing and hem|
|CB lining detail|
|under collar; and a lot of stitches|
How, you are asking, do I know it is really wool?
'Cos I did the burn test with a few fibres snipped from a seam and I put them through the fire. They smelled like burning hair and there were no telltale melty plastic bubbles. (yes! melty is a real word)
And the price for looking like an old lady?
Who's that said I've been robbed?
