    I thought you might like to see a 3 of items from my collection&nbsp;</font></p>

    <p align="left"><font face="Arial" size="3">
    To say these are my favorite vintage fashions is a little of a over statement because at present it represents 50% of my clothes,
    Needless to say I like them very much.&nbsp;</font></p>
    <p align="left"><font face="Arial" size="3">

    This is a 1960/61 Dior suit, if you all them that?, the coat
    (right)&nbsp; is defiantly Dior with correct label.</font></p>
    <p align="left">&nbsp;</p>
    <p align="left"><font face="Arial" size="3">The top and skirt&nbsp; (
    below) is a different matter because&nbsp; has no label in but it's, the same fabric, shade so they were made to be bought as a
    set.</font></p>
    <p align="left"><font face="Arial" size="3"> Unless you know different.&nbsp;</font></p>
    <p align="left"><font face="Arial" size="3">Am I right in calling
    these:-</font></p>
    <p align="left"><font face="Arial" size="3">Skirt Suite</font></p>
    <p align="left"><font face="Arial" size="3">Or is there another name for

    This is a wonderful vintage oriental style evening dress. Its a lovely turquoise blue coloured crepe. Its heavily encrusted with hand sewn beads, rhinestones and sequins. Its lined in blue satin, has two short sleeves, mandarin collar, side split to the knee. There is a long zip at the back and two hook and eye fasteners for the collar.</font></p>

    work on the from and back,&nbsp;<br>
    It is difficult to put an age on it except that it had some slight alterations
    with a piece of black silk added to the side to
    make a handkerchief hem. This later alteration would have been carried out in
    the later&nbsp; 20's to extend the life of the dress and to make it more
    fashionable with a sort of handkerchief hem..<br>
    It's not what you would call a typical flapper dress with the hem line of this
    dress been mid calf but been straight with no waist it is defiantly of the
    period.</font></span></p>

    I love the blue one! Alas, I could never wear anything like it, even in my heyday; too short always, and too stumpy now! The Dior suit is a dynamite color! I think one could call it a suit ensemble...

    I was a worthwhile and slightly surreal experience one thing I work out for this Dior suit ensemble was presumable for winter something which had not occurred to me before.
    With the coat it made three layers, a 60's women would have had one or two items of foundation wear ( which I did not) making a total of four of five layers of clothing, combining this with the time to put it on the two zips and final adjustment leads me to the conclusion of how different clothes must been to wear even 45 years ago. You can also see how the item hangs or is it the cut of the garment which two dimensional view on a hanger you cannot see so well. I would never appreciated these thing if I had not worn it.
    And thank you all for your comments.
