Tete a tete


Finally my exams are over and the weather is warming up. This means at last I can wear the dress I bought about a month ago from the best vintage store in my city, Tete a Tete. It's made of lovely soft cotton and will be prefect for summer. The label is Horrockses. Apparently they were famous in the 50s for their floral print, cotton day dresses (I love looking up the labels of my vintage clothes to see what I can find out). It's in almost perfect condition. The darts in the bodice were coming away a bit so I resewed them and they're good as new. I'm sure this dress will get lots of wear over the next few months.
