    Love the feminine 40s dresses, Justine, especially the one where your daughter has her hair in rollers. I can remember wearing dresses of a similar style in the late 50s/early 60s, made by my aunty who was a dressmaker and we used to go to bed with rollers in our hair (probably in the 60s). How on earth we ever slept in them, I’ll never know… LOL!!!
