Dreadnought School of Fashion ….

What a funny name for a fashion school BUT just look at these beauties found in a local charity shop. I paid pennies for them and although I’m not convinced I will ever use them they were just waaaay too fantastic to let go begging and in such top condition too!

Harking back to the days when almost all ladies knew how to sew, actually not just sew but design and create fantastically crafted garments.

truly wonderful find me thinks 😍

    What a TREAT! Am so envious of all the charity shops on your side of the pond. Did you spot a date anywhere? Maybe 1950’s? xxx del
