    What a perfectionist. A gorgeous gown, a gorgeous pose, a gorgeous girl....a hair out of place. Does it actually fit you Maggie, or have you done that magic thing you do of making things that cannot possibly fit you, that must be 5 sizes too large, look like the seamstress came and sewed you into it? Because if it actually fits you...:drinking2:

    Well, Sarah, it was pretty close to perfect but a little tight at the waist. I do have magic tricks for looking like things fit...lots of years of trial and error have given me something to go on.

    I have a thing about my messy hair! I always look like I just got up unless I try really hard to neaten it. Thank you for your very kind words!

    It's Fabulous! Everyone else always seems to have the best luck finding vintage pieces! What is the name of your shop (can I ask that or will it be removed?)?

    Delaney, Denisebrain is a VFG trade member, which is why she can post information about her online business and photos of items that are currently for sale. It's one of the perks of trade membership.

    Maggie, could you look any more darling?! And let me say, Oscar worthy in every way! How come I never find things like this; sob...

    I don't find things like this either! This is really a dress in its own class—found by a good friend.
