A True Vintage
Last week I had another repeat customer...though not 'repeat' in the conventional sense.
This lady came into the shop and produced a Camisole that I had made for her...35 years ago!
An Ivory Silk with Ivory lace piece (pictured below) that had stood the test of time which I recalled I had made in the early 80's. They say that anything over 25 years old is 'True Vintage'. It also goes to show that the combination of quality materials, craftsmanship and aftercare means that you will have something that lasts. One can look at it as an 'Investment' for their lingerie drawer.
The customer did order two more bespoke pieces, both Camisoles, one Black with Black lace and the other Mint Green with Coffee coloured lace. Both completed and customer has gone away happy with her investment. It seems my craftsmanship may be my worst enemy, as at this rate I can expect her back in 70 years!
This is such a wonderful story. It proves how rare bespoke tailoring is nowadays and how lasting. I think it is really special to preserve this skill and to know that it is available nearby! Thanks. So sad I cannot be there this evening but in bed with a cold. My only solace is the beautiful silk dressing-gown from Keturah Browns I have to keep me warm!
