merely dresses


Annabelle is sporting a handmade crochet dress,
 suitable for wearing to a vignette.

A present of a Vanda Luddy print awaits curation.


I plan to wear something like this, from Charlotte and Jane,
when we meet, so please have your dressing assistant call mine
if your dress will clash or is too similar.

  1. That's alright it isn't even remotely similar. It's not even a dress.

    1. What a relief, Sue. You are one of the bloggers I would most like to meet, and I should be upset if there were any possibility that similar frocks would embarrass our encounter.

  2. You look adorable in your blue dress and red (pink?) boots.I used to wear dresses a lot, but somehow got away from them. Maybe because I'm always spilling things on myself.

  3. The dress is divine - very 'Admen' 50's style - not sure I could get away with it but I'd give it a darn good try.

  4. Ooh, if you're going to wear the snazzy green one, please may I borrow your gorrrgeous blue dress and boots???

  5. May I be excused the Grecian vase atop my hat?

    1. Ah Jessica, will you go for it this once? Just so that I won't feel a fool with a medium-sized cheese-grater on my own hat.

  6. Love the red boots Mise! Pink's jacket seemed to be in a magenta mood that day...very pretty.
    I believe I will be 'Anastasia' that day, the blue should look lovely next to your minty green ensemble, very sophisticated and oceany.
    What a pair we'll make, we will definitely have to find our very own vignette!!
    xo J~

    1. There, I felt a bit conspicuous in my green intentions till you came along in the blue, dear Jessica. No one will dare laugh at Two People.

    2. Who could laugh at such charming and fashionable ladies donning their very best? For shame on any that would, they will not be invited to the Vignette or the Vignette Tea afterwards (too cruel?).

  7. Never mind the dresses - you need to seek advice about candlesticks - that one is appalling. I'm your man for a candlestick stylist.

    1. Would you send along the better candlesticks by courier to arrive between 10 and 1 on Tuesday, Tom, and I'll send the old, appalling ones back to you via the same delivery service. Then I'll be fine.

  8. Your posts are making me smile, and sometimes even guffaw.

    Keep your sunny side up, up. Love the layered look with children's items.

  9. Now I am in full on fretting mode about What to Wear. I consult the Sartorialist for inspiration and then remember that I am short, not thin and don't smoke. If I could just borrow your red boots I could build an outfit from there up perhaps. I would like to meet Sue too. Can we triangulate?

    1. That would be super, Lucille! If I'm not way out in my guess at where you both live, our meeting point appears to be in the Irish Sea, just left of Aberystwyth. Would that suit?

    2. I'm ready to cast off. Just say the word.

  10. Very 60s that green dress. My Mum had one with exactly the same collar...

    Oh - and do you have a pattern for the doll's dress?

    1. No pattern, unfortunately, Pearly Queen - my mother crocheted the dresses for Annabelle and made them up as she went along.

  11. How did you know where I get all my clothes from? Made to measure, in silk, the lot of them. Even the gardening duds.

  12. I think I recognise Bridget's Garden! It is indeed a fine venue for wearing stylish yet sensible red boots to.

  13. Why don't children feel the cold??? Mine used to take off coats, hats, mittens and all of it and leave them all over the neighborhood, school, church-- wherever I made them wear outwear, it just all got left behind. Love your blue dress and red boots! You look charming.

  14. I love dresses!Your mum's really clever, making the doll's dress without any patterns!

  15. I'm not sure Annabelle has the knees for dresses ... I know how she feels!
