No styling, no creative photography and you'll see not even any vacuuming - this frock needed to go on Dotty (the mannequin) straight away. I can't wait for Jem to get home from school to see this - it may just fit her too.
I just love it. The weird thing is the inside label reads Stones of Ballarat. Stones building is still here in Ballarat but it now houses a sports store.
Can you imagine a young girl going to a ball in this dress? The weeks of planning and waiting she would have had, the excitement of getting ready, butterflies in her tummy waiting to be asked to dance. Giggling with her girlfriends behind their hands. It just seems so romantic, all that anticipation.
The skirt has four layers with the bottom being a very soft pink. It is in great condition and I think I shall just leave it as it is - not try to clean it at all.
Oh now that Dotty has a dress some of the other "girls" may want one to.
