>New Dash for Misses- and Smart Smocked Frocks- Circa 1937-1937

>I had every intention of posting fall hats today, but I was distracted when thumbing through the catalog by the lovely smocked dress at the upper left.  Love! I really need to learn smocking- I really admire smocked frocks!  It reminds me very much of one I desperately wanted from Kickshaw on Etsy.  Unfortunately by the time the funds came together the dress was gone! Woe!  But I’m sure whoever got it gave it a great home.  Maybe it went to one of you? 
For those less patient (that includes me), the two top right dresses have lovely shirred detailing.  I particularly love the HUGE collar on the orangish tone frock.

Dress sold by Kickshaw on Etsy.

Just progressing on the coat… slowly.  I’m working now on the fur cuff pieces, then on to the wool!  I also listed several unused Vintage Vogue reprints from my stash on the Etsy shop today, as well as some little vintage what-nots yesterday and today.

    >Oooh, love the kickshaw dress! The smocking is quite restrained – I think I could handle doing that!

    >I like the tunic length over a slim skirt for the orange frock…front kick pleat and all. Oh the ideas you've inspired…!

    >I love the plaid scarf tied in a big bow around the neck of the lady wearing the swagger suit. Super cute!

    >The dresses are beautiful and the smocking in the last photo is beautiful, looks like there are pearls added as well.

    >Oh! I love the dress with the shirring detail; especially since it's echoed on the pockets. Lovely! Too bad about that vintage dress though–it's so gorgeous. That happens to me a lot though: I get my heart set on a piece of vintage and it's sold by the time I can afford it! Boo hoo.♥ Casey | blog
