Feb. 17th, 2014 @ 02:13 pm YARD SALE
Current Mood: hopefulhopeful
So I just can't stand the idea of not getting to go to the francaise dinner, so I'm going to have a bit of a costume yard sale. Sell off a few things to new homes and hopefully raise enough money to head to the dinner!

I stupidly forgot to take exact measurements when I took these over to the NEW apt to photograph, I have around a 34" bust in my stays and probably a 29" waist, if you want more specifics on anything I'll head over after work and get them.


Linen blackwork jacket. Machine sewn, hand finished. Has real gold spangles on the body and the back. Ties are silk ribbon. I believe it's a linen blend as I got it at Joann's, but it's such a good pattern for the period.



Brown 18th century jacket. This is synthetic with machine stitching, it does not have a closure as it was intended to be pinned closed as was period.



Men's double breasted vest. Size L


Vintage linen vest. This one is commercially made but just says size "Large" there is some discoloration beneath the buttons.

Men's doublet, approximately a medium. Made of synthetic fibers lined in cotton machine sewn.

Wool wrap thing. It's a wool viscose blend, again mass produced. one size fits all



Curly lamb muff, probably mid century?


All prices are highly negotiable but do not include shipping, like I said the aim is just to get me to the dinner! I'll be posting a few more things and going through fabric and patterns in the next couple days.
