I had a bit of unsupervised alone time time this week, so I scanned some of my vintage catalogs. I am lucky enough to own several, some since I was a child. First up is a Bedell Stores Spring/Summer catalog from 1921. It was given to me by my step-mother's mother. She lived in Clyde, Texas which is right outside of Abilene. She passed away a few years ago and left me some treasures. Victorian boots, new look hats & a late 1930's velvet robe (I feel like Joan Crawford in it!).
Some of the dresses on the right have a bit of Downton Abbey vibe.
Some of these blouses seem very wearable. Maybe I'll try making one.
These hats still have a teens feel to them, don't you think?
I wish I had some of those clocked stockings! They make me crazy!
