Today we are featuring 'vintagelinens', who has one of the best collections of vintage and antique linens and needlework I've seen yet. In addition, we will show you some of the great vintage clothing from this beautiful shop.
Below we have a selection of pieces done in cutwork (a method of cutting open the shapes of a design on the linen, which are then embroidered around the edges), filet lace, one set trimmed with Battenburg tape lace, all in excellent condition and the hand detailing is just beautiful:
'Vintagelinens' also carries vintage clothing, and here are a few examples of what you can find at the 'vintagelinens' shop. These are 'Maxi' dresses from the 1970s; the 70s saw the rise of the 'Maxi' and 'Midi' skirt, in response to the 'Mini' of the 60s, which over time, got shorter and shorter until there was hardly any skirt at all :-)
The birth of the Maxi and Midi reversed this trend, but retained the bold patterns and bright colors that made 60s fashion so special..
