Vintage Handmade: Christmas Past 50 Years Ago


Yes, you read that right, I got this gown and stole for Christmas 50 years ago.
It was made by my aunt (and Godmother) Virgie P.  She is a excellent seamstress who made gorgeous wedding and bridesmaid gowns back in the day.  I can't tell you how excited I was when I opened this present.......I can still picture it in the box with all the tissue paper!

It's a little faded, a little stained and a little wrinkled but I am so, so glad that I was able to hang on to it all these years.
