I was recently gifted with a treasure trove of vintage dresses from a friend who was cleaning out her grandmother's house. I was so floored by this gift and very aware of the gift I was given.
While I have some vintage clothes in my closet, I do not have many, because frankly, buying vintage clothing is quite pricy. I always balked at paying the price of ready-to-wear vintage clothes. However, after cleaning and repairing vintage clothes , I now understand the labor that goes behind getting something clean and wearable!
