Not as elegant as the item posted yesterday, but wonderful in its own way. This sturdy cotton housecoat with a cheery floral print was just an everyday item, it has survived all these years primarily due to it’s quality fabric and solid construction.
In one way, it was a mess when I found it – covered with brownish spots that had undoubtedly been there for years. But, I know a gem in the rough when I see it and said “I can fix that!” And, with confidence and experience, I did.
It was well worth the gamble. Often this is true – sometimes it’s not and it is better to walk away. Knowing when to walk away is one of the skills I have picked up over the years and has saved me a lot of trouble and expense.
This one, because of its age, was a rare find – but not so awfully rare for the Magicvintagespy .. . . . . . . .poof!
