great news re my 50s vintage party dress

I scored this dress from The Salvos last year, but it's the tiniest
 bit tight at the bust. I was showing the mother-in-law and she said that
the last owner had taken it in and it could easily be let out, so she's going
to alter it for me in the next couple of days. I'm SO EXCITED. I thought
I'd never get to wear it, but it was so pretty I couldn't pass it up.
Oh, and it only set me back $20. I know! Happy Porkchop.


  1. It's gorgeous! I dream of finding something pre 1970's in an op shop. Lucky you for having a clever MIL.

  2. OMG!!! Between that heavenly frock and Pikelte Vanilla Fluffy I think I'm having an apolexy!!!!I want to roll around with both of them!!!
    EEEEEEEK!Seriously thoguh,that FROCK!Jealous!Give me kitty,I might feel better then!XXX

  3. Excellent, you are lucky to have her. I wish I was able to work a sewing machine.

  4. Oh that color is divine!! So glad you will be able to wear it now!

  5. Oooooh she's EXQUISITE! I cannot wait to see you in her - preferably with ten thousand petticoats! Yay for helpful mothers in law! Sarah xxx

  6. Best mother-in-law EVER. Oh, what pretty, pretty frocks - and it'll fit just in time for the serious party season.
