Some of you have already seen this, but I'll post it again since it's related to what I talk about on this journal.

I won an auction for an original turn of the century Edwardian black silk blouse and skirt for $25.00. I was the only bidder. I have no idea why as the size is equivalent to a "medium" today. It's not wearable, of course, but that was to be expected (and mentioned in the auction).

I couldn't resist putting it on!



The sleeves are shattered and the skirt has places where the silk is shattering, but it was ok to stand still in for a moment or two for some photos.
