This discovery came from a different arrondissement, but still within the city of Paris. It is another treasure that only Stella can fit into. I’ll get her to model it after returning to headquarters. Also will be busy scouting out belts . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
Couldn’t be more pleased, though, to find another wartime rayon frock in a fun, fun print. These are some of my favorite garments. This one tells the story of WWII as it was custom-tailored and shows the signs of saving on fabric and notions. The design is very simple with no extra decoration and a very narrow hem allowance, though the tailor did indulge in a big sailor collar with piping.
Such fun to find another rare novelty print – atomic squiggles with goofy birds and other animals. The color combos are also unique. Won’t ever find another one like it . .. . . . . . . . .
