a beau belle creation

the dress
c.1940.s made in Ireland
glazed cotton
sold it at the market , to a lovely woman, it was a special dress, like it had been hand drawn.

I didnt know that dory previn ,the singer who sung from a fragile and broken heart died just a few months ago poignantly on valentines day,she was 86.
I was introduced to her singing by an older hippy friend a long time ago, back in the 1980,s and I was transfixed by the honesty and clearness of her songs ,she has paved the way for many .Glad to have heard her voice.

That dress was never worn , it was from an old shop in the town I live,bought when the shop closed about 10 years ago.....the dress had remained in the shop un -bought since around the 1940,s ....amazing hey !
It has a good home now.
