Inspector Alleyn is one of my favorite detective series. Set in 1940s England - gentleman detective, fun leading lady, lots of drawing rooms and big black bakelite phones. And lovely period costumes
Seafoam green velvet
I used to have the pink taffeta version of the hideous green one on the left here.
Love the bust fin detail. Flocked black polkadots on taupe taffeta.
White rabbit on brocade or beads, I can't tell
How to mix plaids and stripes. She is the cutest.
I had planned to do a much longer post from this series but they are suddenly unavailable for instant viewing. More later..
