Outrageous Fashion Fortune

Sooo, guess which lucky Baroness just got her greedy little hands on a lovely estate lot of 20s/30s dresses for her shop? Why, me! That's who!  How fortunate: a lady was selling pieces from the collection of her mother, who had been an avid collector of 20s and 30s fashion!?!  All three of the chiffons shown below are in wonderful wearable condition, but that exotic orange one is minty!  Coming sooonnnnn to the shop (unless I steal the violet crepe number and the black &white chiffon one after I try them on..hehe...occupational hazards...)

Isn't the purple one a treat? I'll have to model the chiffon ones if I can, just to show their design elements to best advantage!!

iliveinmylab: I'll have to measure the yellow one. It's bust area seems quite generously cut (I clipped the dress on the mannequin), which makes me think it's a larger size. Will double check...
