La Belle Epoque

Sunday, July 24, 2011

This entry comes to us direct from the muddy banks of Granville Ferry, NS. (photography courtesy of my mom and dad)  On a recent trip to Ontario, my mother was able to collect her late sister Wendy's carefully preserved antique wedding dress.  Upon returning home, she put it on her Judy and sent me a few of the photographs as she knew I'd appreciate the detail.  My aunt had purchased the dress at a vintage shop in Toronto in the early 80's.  It is Edwardian and is all hand done - the lace to the overcasting.  Pretty remarkable really.  Directly above is a family photo from the wedding, circa 1983. You can see how delightful it was on my aunt, she reminds me of a Gibson Girl.  My mother is on the left, pregnant with my brother,  in a dress she made for herself.   I'm the wee lass in the front in my lavender smock dress.
