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