(Rebecca, Daphne du Maurier, 1938)
I'm calling this one my Mrs Danvers Dress, because (apart from the length) it reminds me of the dress worn by Mrs Danvers (Judith Anderson) in the 1940 Hitchcock film, Rebecca.
I'm not sure how old it is, but I suspect it's an 80's take on a frock from the late 30's early 40's...it has a belted waist, mid-calf length skirt, shoulder pads and the tailored look of frocks from that era anyway.
But while it might be Mrs Danvers in the front, there's not a trace of her in the back - look how beautiful it is!
I do hope someone will buy it - I'm only selling it because it's too big for me, and it deserves to be worn. You know the drill - send me a note if you're interested, payment to my Frocktober fund etc. etc.

It's about saving women's lives, as simple as that.
This is what happens when your photographer (and husband) says things like "work it baby!" and "oh yeah!"
