Christine's Love of Vintage, and the Winter Season
Baby clothes. Adorable, sweet and small, and they make us recall childhood memories. But Christine, a sensitive and thoughtful woman, gives us more and better reasons to desire vintage children's clothes. She is attracted to the design; the pattern of the garment; vintage details; and the sewn construction. The things true vintage lovers seek. For the handmade pieces, Christine is drawn to the handiwork and attention to detail, knowing these pieces are one-of-a-kind. The 1930's gabardine coat in her shop, and shown here, is one of her favorites. It exemplifies her fine taste for vintage features and quality construction. This coat is double-breasted with a large, full, cut-in, faux fur collar. Pockets, a wide belt, and a lining, oh my gosh, of Alpaca wool fur! And the gabardine fabric, a rich, full-body woven cloth! All carefully sewn to create the finest outerwear. Wow, what an amazing, BabyTweeds piece! Yes, adorable, and, of the best quality. All wonderful reasons why Christine loves vintage, and reasons to love her, and BabyTweeds.
And there is more to the meaning of this coat, to be worn during Christine's favorite season, the one that holds memories of long, snowy winters in her beloved, childhood state of Michigan. It reminds her of the attire of her past Mitten State friends. And winter makes her recall visits to the cider mills, ice skating with her father, and visions of falling snow. Things fondly remembered as she displays her wares.
And what piece of clothing does she remember best? The organdy dress, sold this summer. There is no other like it, she says, as she speaks about her admiration for the craftsmanship, the gorgeous fabric and fine touches. There will never be another, she laments, it is perfect and unique, like her other BabyTweeds listings.
