Wishing It Was Summer

 It has been such a long winter, spring is nearly here in about 16 days, but I'm dreaming of summer right now.

 I have gone through my vintage collection and decided to start posting again,been very busy this past year, but I'm still here. Omaa indayaa !!! ( Ojibwe)

 These items will be on my website in the near future, but you can find them on Etsy right now.

 Please email me at cabbiekat@hotmail.com if you have any questions or message me on Etsy, thanks.

 This 60s 70s cotton mini muumuu Hawaiian dress now available, just message me for
details. I have this muumuu styled with a belt, it really is an a-line tent dress perfect for
a beach cover up this summer. Just pair this with some cute espadrilles or salt water sandals and voila, a fun beach look.

Another Mad Men dress from my collection


  Here's a dress I found in my collection that looks so similar to the Jane Sterling character . It's a sheath dress with a boat neckline, bloused bodice, elastic waist and narrow sash belt. The closure has a back metal zipper, and the dress is unlined very 60s. This one is sleeveless whereas Jane's character is short sleeved. I also noticed that the color block patches coordinate except for one that is a dark brown. This dress is by Diane Young  , a label from the 50s and 60s that manufactured shirts , blouses, and ladies dresses.



Shirtwaist Classic Fashioned by Diane Young.

 It measures 40 around the bust, the waist is 26" to 30" and the length is 42". Hand wash.

 Size Small/Medium.
