Another Lovely dress my friend Kathy allowed me to showcase here. This dress was worn and possibly handmade by her mother in the 1940s. I hope soon to post a little more about her- she was a real beauty who was often called on to model back in the day; I'll ask Kathy to share a little about her.
Meanwhile, here is a dress she wore, and if I am not mistaken, for some sort of beauty pageant.
Note The Sleeves: I love how they were sewn and pleated to maintain their fullness.
