Hopetown Blouse


 This is my own blouse, worn during the summer of production (sold out online).

*****


Hip-length contour-cut slip-on blouse in a Liberty tana lawn cotton print. 


Print is primarily grey and white, with dottings of coloured flowers.

This pullover style shirt sits on the hip, and is worn out rather than tucked in.

It has a contoured raglan cut, bound neckline, three quarter sleeves, narrows in at the waist and is finished with a deep hem. Very light to wear in one of the best Liberty prints ever.

Size 2: Bust 33in / 84cm; Hips 36 in or 92cm

Best fit US2 (or US0).  To gauge sizing, I have a 33" bust and I take a 26" jean.



Condition:  Very good/excellent. No marks or signs of wear.

Original sold for US$88.

Asking price US$45 plus shipping.

Shipping to Australia US$5, and everywhere else in the world US$8. NZ shipping free.

Vintage: Toddler Rose-Trimmed Fur Coat & Bonnet








I have held on to this darling little coat for too long now.  With my girls now 4 and 7 I think it's time for it to go to another little girl deserving of a special Winter coat.

It is a creamy white faux fur coat with pink satin binding around the collar, coat front and on the bonnet. Roses feature down the coat's front and on the bonnet.

The coat buttons up the front and the bonnet secures with pink satin ties.

Vintage tag size 16 = my estimate 1-2 years.

Condition: very good, no marks or stains, lining tidy and intact.  Missing one button.  It is sold as is but I will do my very best to locate a fitting button.

Made in New Zealand by Fenton.  I actually bought this off the lady who had it bought for her as a child in the late 1960's from Smith & Caugheys department store in Auckland, New Zealand.  (See last image.)

Asking: US $45

Shipping to Australia US $6.5, US & UK $11, and everywhere else in the world US$13.



Vintage: Noddy Toddler Knit Top







Adorably sweet vintage Noddy brand knit top.   Features a contrasting collar and cuffs and buttons down the back. I can just picture the cute little boy wearing this sort of thing in the 1960s.

Size 1-2 years.
Acrylic knit.
Made in New Zealand by Cashmore MacNichol Ltd, Auckland

Asking: US$8

Condition:  Very good.  Very light pilling on collar and cuffs.

Shipping to Australia US $6.5, US & UK $11, and everywhere else in the world US$13.  I am happy to combine with a purchase from my etsy shop.

Childs Wool Vest






A special pure wool child's vest constructed from a considered selection of wool coatings and a sprinkling of wool gabardine.  It is a fitted vest, shaped through the front, back and sides and is finished with facings, and a mixture of bound and raw edges, and topstitched details.

Four neutral buttons on a scalloped placket, with bound coral red button holes.

Definitely one of a kind!  A special little vest that took quite some time to design and construct.

Colours are stone, olive, yellow and coral buttonholes.

Size 3T.  Also fits 2Y - 4Y.

Asking price:  US $18

Condition:  Very good. 

Shipping to Australia US$6.5, US & UK $11, and everywhere else in the world US$13. I am happy to combine postage with a purchase from etsy shop.
