thrift store finds.. part two.. antique

i also found a couple beautiful edwardian or victorian era things.





this beautiful lace collar and cuffs were found pinned together and needing a good whitening. they cleaned up well.. but do have a couple remaining spots. they are so pretty. the collar snaps closed and is accented with two silver trimmed glass buttons. and yes.. i intend to wear these!






this beautiful dress was fond at the same thrift store as the collar and cuffs. so it is possible the same woman owned them. it is entirely made from lace and netting. of course you would have won something ender it. it reminds me of the clothes in the titanic movie. with the overlays. so pretty! and surprisingly sturdy. i haven't washed it.. kinda scared to!
