The first purchase this year was a box of Victorian baby clothes.
They don't look very inspiring in the box however now that they have been washed and pressed........
At the bottom of the box was a lot of lace and Swiss embroidery trim. As the dresses all came from the same family (Alexander family)and were all hand stitched presumably the lace had been saved from other baby clothes and was awaiting use on more garments.
So now it's ready and available for you crafters out there to use to embellish and create something new.
Another auction tomorrow so I'll get the bidding paddle ready!
