My friend is downsizing her vast collection of books, and kindly offered me some of her wonderful dressmaking and vintage fashion book collection. While I was at her house drooling, she showed me a doll her mother had given her, complete with a mind-boggling wardrobe of fifties dresses, and a lace wedding dress. I can't believe it, but she has offered to give her to me! I nearly screamed just now when she rang me up. Stay tuned for some photos next week. She also gave me a cabinet for my cotton reel collection!
