I heart today's vintage finds.
I was looking at this fur shrug a few weeks ago, and tried it on and pranced about, and couldn't stop thinking about it afterwards. I was chuffed that it was still there. This late 1940s bolero has a matching dress, and both are not quite finished; it is going to be a sewing project for me. As you may know, I've never sewn anything large like this, and I think it will be a good way to learn. I am part excited, part nervous about this! The pale blue gloves are early 1950s, and the bow brooch 1930s. I love brooches, but they can be hard to find, and I especially love that it is not gold toned.
I will post the sewing project as I go. Wish me luck (and maybe give me tips!) xxx
edit these aren't from an op shop (alas!) but I have a contact, a man in the know if you like *tapping side of nose*
