On the weekend we hit the Rock and Roll Markets for the last dance of the year, and I picked up this gorgeous 1940’s silk dress for $10!
(I think the lovely Pia from Vintage Allsorts was just being nice because I was so taken with it)
Its everything I love in a 1940s dress – washable silk, gathers at the front so it fits my wide hips and contrast bakelite buttons!
The front actually closes with hooks and eyes, the buttons are just decorative.

Does anyone have a good solution for removing unknown stains from vintage silk?
Has anyone tried glycerine and white spirits? (recommended in my Spotless book).
I really need some advice – thank you all in advance!
