Best appreciation photo!

So I have really been neglecting this blog... like alot! i guess that most of my spare time has been going to putting things up in the store. its alot of work washing, mending, ironing and photographing everything. i love it very much, but i have pretty limited free time as a grad student, so despite my grand plans, i can't always finish everything i want to!
But anyways, i've been wanting to get back to the blog and the other day I received the best appreciation photo, and it was a great inspiration for a post. A little while ago i sold this dress in my etsy store. i had bought it on ebay from a lady who was getting rid of the clothes she used to wear as a girl. it fit me pretty well, but i have this sort of weird phobia about wearing dresses without sleeves (strange, i know!), so i decided to sell it.
Well the sweet girl who bought it sent along this picture, of a cute girl in the 40's wearing nearly exactly the same dress! Apparently, she had just read an article on feedsack dresses, seen this old picture and then saw my dress in the shop! pretty amazing!


  1. Well, this is just the best thing ever. I love seeing things old matching things!!

  2. Wow, that's eerie! They really look like they could be the exact same dress.

  3. Whoa! I just saw this linked from cici speaks and that is absolutely crazy. What a neat find :).
