With all the interest in Vintage clothing,

 from Once Upon A Time days.

Delightful, Karen! :-)

Only... Well I do remember reading about Pickfair via an autobiography Mary wrote...I think. She sure was a pretty lady for many many years.

You didn't save any of your pretty dresses? Oh dear. At least you can conjure them up in these wonderful drawings. I didn't have the princess kind of dresses. I had the country gal kind of dresses...gingham and such. Sigh. I'd like to have had the prettier kind and I've always secretly wanted a velvet dress. T'ain't too likely at this point in my life. :D

I have always wished I had some place to wear a dress like one of these. Why isn't there a good reason to dress up anymore?! Still, it's fun dreaming isn't it?

Hello Karen,

You are going to laugh at me...but I never liked dresses or gowns...I do not wear them or own any...LOL!

But...I have to say that I really, really liked what you did with them.
Love the mix of techniques in your drawings and colours you used.
You are definitely a great designer!

Ooh, ooh, ooh! This was so much fun. I would like one of each. They make one feel so pretty.
