The Costume Collection: 1950s

Part Eight of the series on Loel Thomson’s Costume Collection.

Loel has created a lovely tableaux for two of her cotton ‘fifties frocks – I wish I had taken a close up of the one below, the cotton floral has that slightly uneven, slightly raised look that perhaps is hand-painted. It’s accessorised with a straw basket and glass necklace. I love the curtains!

Another cotton frock, one of my favourites:
50s yellow
50s yellow - close up

The print on this floral party frock is probably hand painted as well.

  1. Please please could you tell me something about the lamp you use in your shots-the dansette-legged plastic one with the circular table feature!! Do these tables have a name?
