Wool suit
Classic Deréta two piece
Deréta classic
1960s Deréta two piece, skirt and waistcoat…perfect for office or about town!

Deréta is a great English label to look out for. This fab two piece suit is in pure wool and has a brown taffeta lining to both the waistcoat and the skirt. From the 1960s, this look was really popular for the “girl about town”  or for office wear and could be teamed with coloured tights and Mary Ann strap shoes, or with little boots. Under the top you could wear a nylon turtle neck ( as shown), a skinny rib sweater or a fitted shirt. As with all vintage of this era, it is best to check actual measurements with your own as label sizing is quite different then and now. This is labelled as a size 14, but is more like a 12 with a smallish waist!

Vintage tapestries in sewing craft and supplies section at Coolclobber

Coolclobber has a growing section devoted to sewing, crafts and supplies, including many vintage sundries and fabrics that will lend themselves to a variety of vintage sewing projects and upcycle projects.

I have always enjoyed re-using vintage fabrics and giving them a new life. So, along with selling clothes and accessories , I am always on the look-out for interesting textiles, vintage buttons and trims , patterns and sundries.  Today I added a number of completed tapestries  that I came across recently.  There are already a few in the shop , so now there is a great selection to choose from. Some would lend themselves to being incorporated into luxurious cushion/pillow covers, some would look great framed and there are endless possibilities for creative sewing projects, including their use in carpet bags or totes.

Metal thread embroidered black velvet evening bag

Peacock design bag
Exquisite embroidered bag with peacock design

https://www.etsy.com/uk/listing/505069734/vintage-metal-thread-embroidered-velvet?ref=shop_home_active_1

This is my latest vintage find and one I was keen to share . The embroidery is wonderful, worked in metal thread, in silver and gold tone with deep blue on the peacock bodies.  It is a classic Indian made velvet evening bag of a style that has endured for many years.  These bags were popular both in the early and mid twentieth century and are perfect for teaming with an elegant gown.

Art Deco handbag, 1930s.

I have two wonderful examples of early twentieth century English made handbags on the shelves of Coolclobber right now.   Both in brown leather, one in a clutch style with a back strap, and one with top handles. Both handbags feature inner double purses on rolling hinges, and are lined in brown moiré fabric.  Given their age, they are both in great condition, with just a little bit of tarnishing or corrosion in the inner purse frames, but both with very good fitting kissing clasps, good condition leather and linings.
