Ida Catherine is one of my favourite vintage enthusiast’s who is active under the Instagram personae @idacath.

“One of my absolute most beloved vintage dresses. It’s a late 1930s cornflower blue dress with white embroideries and pockets! When I got this dress a few years ago, it had 1930s flutter sleeves, but I gathered them and hid the seam with a pearlescent button. I also replaced the damaged fabric belt buckle with this 1910s mother of pearl one. ✨ I have absolutely zero sewing skills so this just involved a few stitches. I never do alterations that are not reversible, and with this dress I feel like I’ve made it better. It’s a complete dream of a dress and the fit is absolutely amazing!”
