  1. Hej!
    Försökte anmäla mitt intresse för två 1700-tals klänningar. Den första blommiga och den blårandiga. Vill gärna köpa båda om de funkar till 40 storlek. Vet inte om min kommentar gick fram?
    Hälsningar Lena Starck

  2. Hello
    Today i saw different photographs of dresses of our past. Its amazing. I never saw this type of photos, its incredible and spectacular. The dresses are awesome. I am Davinder singh from punjab, India. I am an artist. I like the erdwardian period 1885- 1910. I have painted different paintings on edwardian time. In 1890, britihers ruled over india. The dresses of british ladies were amazing. Kindly make some dresses on british era in india during 1885-1890. And click photographs. I have collection of old photographs of british time. If you want, i send you.
    Thanks
    Regards
    Davinder singh
