What to do with this dress? A question I have been asking myself for quite a number of years.
About 20 years ago I used to do Amateur dramatics. A lady donated loads of clothes for the costume department and I couldn't bear to let them cut this one up, so I gave a donation to the club and took it home. I had every intention of loosing weight and actually wearing it. I even made Mr WD promise to take me to a Ball when I did. Alas it never happened and its just been stuffed in the loft.
I have been thinking again about what to do with it so its come out of the loft.
I have tried to find out a bit about the label, Jean Allen was not anything amazing, just a 60's and 70's clothes manufacturer. There really wasn't much about it I could find out.
I think Jean Allen is the maker and Marshall and Snelgrove I think were the shop that sold it.
Its obviously missing some straps....... this is the back view
Sell it frame it?
Or shove it back into the loft??
