    I just bought this and it is mint with tags. I have never seen a seersucker uniform before and I adore it!!



    Edit. When was Dacron invented?

    This is what I found searching the web and the VFG forum:
    About the uniform: Is it deadstock? Very well preserved, by the way.

    Thanks for the information.

    I collect vintage waitress stuffs because I've worked in the service industry, in one form or another. since I've been 15!

    Thanks. That vintage photo is of a waitress wearing the same uniform on the right.


    I, also, made a pin that I always wear when I wear a vintage uniform to work. The frying pan was on my mother's refrigerator! I put it on a sterling bow salvaged from another brooch.

    Did you already have this picture or did you browse the web for it? If so, how did you find it?

    I had the dress and found the photograph later. I have bought old photographs before so I think Ebay throws photographs in my searches. For instance, I was searching waitress uniforms. That and the seller must have listed it as photo of waitress in uniform. I couldn't believe it and bought it instantly.

    Mostly, I used to search for old sweater photographs.

    I know,eh?!!! Alas, only things that interest me. My house is a direct reflection of who I am.

    Is it time for an update on my patio?

    I painted it electric blue this year. A new colour every year. The Home Depot staff loved it! That is a very old chandelier. Found it flea marketing with my Mom.


    The other paint job and repair done this summer was my car port.



    Finally, I replaced two old basement windows. And put in window wells on all my basement windows.


    All by myself!
