- My study garment just got delivered today by a friend of mine, and so
I decided to take a *few* pictures of it with my new digital camera.
To view these photos go to: http://photos.yahoo.com/prettylizabel
then go to "Study Garment". The best way to view them is through the
slideshow, as I did "panning" from top to bottom of the dress.
Description: I'm not yet entirely sure how old this dress is, but my
friend and I have come up with somewhere in the 1930's. I found a
similar dress on ebay, also labeled as 1930's, so I don't think I'm
too far off in my guessing. It is an off-white wedding dress which
probobly used to be white, with a sheer outer layer and a solid cream
underlayer. There are 22 fabric covered buttons down the back that go
to about waist level. From looking inside the dress, I know that it
was not a store-bought dress, as the seams are unfinished, and
clipped at stress points, just like us modern sewers without a serger
do when we sew clothes.
