A passion for vintage dresses...

One of my biggest passions is finding pretty vintage prom dresses and lingerie.   For some reason I just can't resist them.  Oh well it's a good thing that I have a booth. This pretty pink ruffled gown was won on ebay.

I've expanded my booth at Calabash Marketplace to allow room for vintage dresses and accessories and this Southern Belle will take center stage....well, at least for awhile...

  I can just imagine a Southern Belle wearing this  to the debutante ball.  Don't y'all just love her!
Well that's it for now so remember to get out there and create, sew, paint, photograph, write or do whatever makes you happy.
Also don't forget to share your creations with all of us!
I'm joining the party at Coastal Charm's Show and Share!

I love vintage gowns too. Not sure where it comes from though as we don't wear a lot of gowns in NY. =)

Love it! I recently found one at a flea market(not as pretty as yours) And I asked my facebook friends if anyone wants the picture taken wearing it, as long as you had a 25" waist. I got 3 people, I did 2 so far they are so cute.

Some southern miss was a true belle of the ball when she wore this.

That dress just makes me smile. I love old dresses like that too, i always gravitate towards them, and then think what will i do with it if i buy it! The thing is, they are usually so small! Oh my gosh, i couldn't fit my leg in the waist of some of them!
