1950s polkadot ball gown - I love this dress!
I took these photos at the V & A in London. They had a ball gown exhibition happening when I went (and I see they have a costume exhibition coming! I wish I lived a little closer to London...) and while I wasn’t allowed to take any photos in that area, they had a great little pre-exhibition set up where photos were allowed.

Suits by Balenciaga - including a miniature day dress, cute!
Christian Dior miniature day dress
Don't you love the miniature dresses? Couture houses made these as mock ups before they would actually make dress in full size.
I hope your weekend is going well - I have baking, cooking dinner and sewing on the agenda!
