|This c. 1900 gown is made of pineapple fiber fabric, just like the stuff you can buy at Dharma Trading Co. Okay, maybe not JUST like, but very similar, including the lovely stripe.|
|A detail of the pineapple fiber gown. Gorgeous!|
|1921 Graduation (high school) dress. Lovely voile with lots of rufflies.|
|A detail of the 1921 gown. It had quite a few snap closures and the construction was very much like older examples from the 19teens, with various under layers closing in various ways.|
|Impressive lacy 1900-1910s gown.|
|This was the stunner of the event - a 1962 "Supreme Queen of the Nile" gown. I can see Audrey Hepburn mincing around in this. The beadwork was out of this world.|
|I stuffed some tulle into the cap - too much? Hahaha, that's quite a ridiculous profile!|
