This dress belonged to my grandmother. It’s made of an interesting early synthetic fabric, and has a matching bolero jacket that I rarely wear.
I love the dress though. It fits me perfectly, and it’s such a stunning colour. I can’t quite figure out the date – it’s such a classic cut. Anyone want to make a guess?
That hat was also Grandma’s: I own a dozen or so of her hats.
And the rest of the photos:
The photography was done by Sarah and Madame Ornata, but alas, there was a great deal of handing-around of cameras, and I can’t recall who took what photo in every case! They are both excellent photographers though!
