I'm not a blogger; nor do I still sew, but found your Spadea blog (and others) well-written & fascinating.
I love hearing stories about this era in fashion & style. As a young adolescent, I was just starting to twirl and look in the mirror back in the late 60's. My Mom was an avid sewer & often spoke of the Duchess, so I feel a "connection" to this info.
Thanks for taking the time to bring these stories into the present. - KD
