Super Gran

For a woman with a seeing eye dog she has great taste. This is one of her cast off's she gave to me the other day.

I had totally forgotten all about this top's existance. It was given to me and my grandma by a lady who used to be our neighbour. My gran used to be a wardrobe mistress for years on West End shows in London and the BBC. She also used to run her own Costume Hire shop in Govan of all places.

Dunno if you can make out the label but it says the lace dates from 1905 - 1935. It's obviously been dyed but i love the fact that the garment still carries te sillhouette from that time. I love the fact it looks like snake skin. That's definitely gonna pop up in a shoot soon.
