***DON'T FORGET TO SCROLL DOWN AND SIGN UP FOR THE FEBRUARY GIVE AWAY!!***
One of my blog readers sent me an e-mail. She deals with antique clothes and did not know what she had acquired. Here are the pictures she sent:
The label - Busvine and Co. from Paris made specifically for Mrs. Offield.
I told her it was not a 'riding skirt' but an apron and judging by its length was probably made in the 1920's.
Here it is inside out.
I gave her basic information about how the apron was used and that it was a shame that there was not a matching jacket as I assume it was originally made with one.
Here is a picture of Mrs. Offield (the far left) with some of her friends. I thought it was cool that not only was the garment marked with her name, but that the seller also had her picture!She told me she would be offering it up on E-bay...but I am not sure when.
Pretty interesting though - huh!
