    guess what??I jhave a lot of very old fabric,still in good condition,filling up a huge cabinet/cupboard. I am going to use it to make simple dresses,shifts ,pants,from the 60's and try to copy Balenciaga's original "the sack:" scillouette(cause my shape now demands it,)I guess i'm vintage and stuck in the past!!
