Holy cow - Vintage Textile has some gorgeous things right now!! My apologies if you have already seen these but they were new to me so I thought I'd share:

1790s crewelwork petticoat - whoa dude I want one!!!! *drool*
1770s short jacket- love the colored linings
1800 matching dress and Spencer- more drooling
quilted Regency Spencer - never seen a quilted one before - lovely color!

I so love 18c!

I love the crewelwork on those petticoats! If it took me 9 months to do the Bespin embroidery, I can't imagine how long that took!

I love the 1800 Spencer and gown - I really have to make a regency gown one of these days. I thought it interesting that the back of the gown's bodice was pieced together:

I know - one of the RCHS ladies and I were talking about how much we wanted a crewelwork petticoat, then looked at each other and laughed. Yeah right, as if we will really ever get to that! Golly, they are gorgeous though!

Yeah I noticed that piecing too... so good they photographed that. :>

Don't they have a great collection? I go there very often to drool over the stuff! They're asking 5,000 for ONE shoe (Slaps head) Aye yie yie!

Oh yes, one of my favorite vintage places. Good for drooling, inspiration and the study of period yummies.

*sigh* What would be ever do without the internet! :>
