SPRING VINTAGE CLOTHES RUMMAGE

Vintage goodies

The family recently helped with the sorting out of my mother's vintage clothes collection. This involved going through to see what was inside and making sure each item was repacked in the correct box. Many of these clothes have remained in boxes for many years and are therefore very creased and smelled strongly of mothballs. Before they were packed away again I just had to get a few images of some of the items. The images below are of the clothes, un-ironed, and simply popped on from the box. As the clothes were all small in size I had to used my aughters and nieces to model them for me.
