I made it to the Vintage Market in Berwick today.  Didn’t get to the Mind, Body and Spirit show as I blew the budget at the first stop.  Along with some wonderful lace I came home with a very special skirt.

I took some quick pictures for you and will take more tomorrow.  Its been cut down from another piece – a dress?  Not sure, but its the real thing in terms of metalwork embroidery and it is really heavy.

    Totally gorgeous, Helen, and worth every cent of your budget! Are you planning on wearing it or is it going to form part of your art?

    This is beautiful Helen. It looks like a traditional Indian wedding dress to me. Not a sari, but the name escapes me at the moment. A friend of mine wore one for her wedding, it was so heavy because the threads were real gold.
    Looking forward to seeing what you do with it.

    wow – that red is so intense. I would love to wear it today, when everything is grim, grey and cold outside, to remind me of summer.
