A Gem of a Find

Today was the annual city-wide yard sale in Plummer. I picked up several things for the baby and the little boys, but my find of the day were these...
 A lovely blouse in pristine condition. Beautiful lace around the collar and down the front. There is also lace at the cuffs. There is ruching (?) across the front of the blouse.

Here are some close-ups from this blouse.

Here is the second blouse. It has some damage around the bottom from the side seam to side seam around the front. The tag says Geisha waist.

Here are the close-ups of this blouse. It is so very lovely. I wish it were a wearable size!

This is a beautiful, simple chemise. It is actually a size that could be worn.
Here is a close up of the embroidery on the chemise.

Although these are frail antiques, they really are in wonderful shape. I also got a couple other things of the same era, but I have no idea what they are. :-) And, all for $3!

I truly have no idea what I'm going to do with them, but they are so very lovely, I couldn't resist. Our church is celebrating it's 100th Anniversary next month, and I will probably put them on display for that. Other than that, they will probably go into storage until I once again have a sewing room.

  1. Those are so pretty. I love old pieces of history that have been preserved. If you post a picture of the items you can't identify someone might be able to tell you what they are. You got a great bargain. I'd expect to pay $3 for either one of the garments.

    I'm still saying daily prayers for little Jethro. I love the picture of him with those chubby little cheeks.
