VEIL 290 . . .$40.00

White round cocktail hat with pearls, lace, rhinestones, a triple-loop horsehair bow and Russian veiling, and a triple veil. Very dramatic and special.


3/4 Yard Alençon Lace. . .Original Price: $120/yd. CLOSEOUT PRICE: $45.00 for the piece. That's a 50% savings!

Three-quarters of a yard of incredibly beautiful white Alençon lace. The scalloped pattern repeats on both edges, with the allover pattern as shown. Width is 33". Cut carefully, this is plenty for a sleeveless or strapless bodice, and will probably allow you motifs left over to place on your skirt or veil. This is heavy, exquisite quality lace, probably nylon that could be dyed to any color.

NOTE: This was photographed against a blue background so the lace would stand out. The lace itself is white.

20 1/2" Chantilly Lace (that's almost 5/8 of a yard). . .Original Price: $80/yd. CLOSEOUT PRICE: $25.00 for the piece.

Almost 5/8 of a yard of beautiful pale ivory or candlelight Chantilly lace. The scalloped pattern repeats on both edges, with the allover pattern as shown. Width is 37". Cut carefully, this is plenty for a strapless bodice, or perhaps a sleeveless bodice for a small bride. Could also make a very beautiful short mantilla veil. This is exquisite quality lace with a lovely sheen, probably nylon that could be dyed to any color.

NOTE: This was photographed against a blue background so the lace would stand out. The lace itself is pale ivory or candlelight.

FSF101 . . . Black silk flower clusters with white pips . . . 12 pieces / $12.00 for all

Approximate size: 3". Excellent condition. Probably 1960 's.


Garter 1. . . $10.00

Very pretty white satin and lace garter with blue rosette and ribbon and a gold heart charm.

Garter 2. . . $10.00

Another very pretty satin and lace garter, this time in blue satin with white lace, with blue ribbon and a gold heart charm.

Battenberg Lace Ringbearer Pillow. . . $20.00

This was a little hard to photograph, and the photo in no way does it justice, but it is very, very sweet. White (could pass for white or candlelight) cotton Battenberg lace over a white satin pillow. Blue bows centered with pearls surround a picot-edged satin bow that holds two faux wedding rings. The underside has an elastic band to keep it firmly attached to a tot's unsteady hand.

18 Yards VINTAGE Orange Velvet Ribbon. . . $24.00

This is the good stuff, the kind you can't get anymore. 100% nylon — NOT Polyester — velvet ribbon with a nice finished edge, made for Offray at least 20 years ago in Switzerland. Soft but not too soft, a very pretty color for an autumn wedding. Ten yards at 5/8" wide, approx. 8 yards at 7/8" wide (I am reluctant to remove it from the bolt to measure it exactly, as I would not like to crush the velvet).

"Short Cuts to Fashion" This looks like a gold mine of sewing tips and techniques, patterns, and even a handy tool. Seven pieces: "Short Cuts to Fitting", "Grain Line Detector" ("Just place it on fabric, you're on grain"), "10 Sizes in One Easy To Fit Children's Basic Pattern", "Coutourier Methods for Bias Edgings, Saddle Stitch, Custom Tailoring, Covered Neck Zippers, Copying Finished Garments, Davidow Tailoring Techniques", "Convert Your Basic Pattern into Sheath-A-Line-Tapered Shift-Overblouse-Priincess Line Plus New Easy Methods for Good Fitting Capris-Slacks-Shorts-Pants", "24 Sizes in One Easy-to-Fit Basic Pattern" and "24 Sizes On One Easy-to-Fit Convertible Suit Basic Suit-Pattern (Use as a Suit or Convert as a Coat)". The patterns and materials appear never to have been used, and only some of the envelopes whow discoloration. The largest envelope, the suit patterns, has some tears as you can see in the photo but they could be easily repaired and nothing seems to be missing; the envelope did its job of protecting the contents. "Choose Your Fit Once . . . That's It!". Copyrights 1964 through 1967.
