THE EIGHTEENTH DAY

More treasures from the attic on this day 18 of my challenge.

 



This time from my attic.
Taking in to college vintage samples for the students to examine and record the historic details of.
A Delicate Edwardian blouse from Jenners in Edinburgh.

 
Its in beautiful condition and full of delicate details.


I have really been enjoying sharing these old finds with you and the students.
Hopefully every one is enjoying them just as much.

  1. I lived in Edinburgh for 8 years about 20 years ago. I'd forgotten all about Jenners, thanks for that, a great blast from the past :)

  2. I assure you that I am enjoying every detailed view of these treasures.

    Same goes for that smiling Cheshire Cat resting its embroidered beauty upon that pin cushion. Wow!

  3. I love Jenner's. Edinburgh wouldn't be the same without it. This blouse is incredible. The detail, the fabric, i so wish that you could buy things like this now. It must have been very expensive if it was from Jenner's. Xx

  4. I bought a coat from Jenners about 10 years ago, a tapestry style fabric in a beautiful mixture of pale and icy blues. I still get compliments every time I wear it.
