|1931 Buick, in front of the Pope Mansion|
|My mother and me - trouble comes in 2s!|
It has a little bit of damage already - some tiny frayed holes on the back - but it's in shockingly good condition for being about 90 years old and made of some weird stiff-ish voile-type stuff (cotton). The pink slip was perfect underneath and gave me no trouble.
Mom wearing 1930s sporting togs. How cute is she!? She got this vintage tennis racket for just $10!
I managed to tear the dress a little, getting into the car. There is a split at the top of the back right shoulder, about 1" long. Heartbreaking! And I was on pins and needles all day after discovering it, trying not to tear the thing right down the back! I get to devise some way to patch it now...patching a transparent dress...great.
All in all it was SUCH a lovely day. Perfect weather, great friends, pretty dresses!
