This summer I became the proud owner of about 100 feet of “Miss Agnes” dress labels — two big rolls. I sew, but I know that I will never be able to bear to cut these.
Miss Agnes ran a well-known ladies’ dress shop in nearby Pittsfield during its heyday. I think she bought dresses from New York (or had them made?) and put these labels in them. I got them from her condo, which was kind of sad. But I was happy to give them an appreciative home.
Oh, I also have a real Miss Agnes dress, that fits, from another estate sale! But that is wonderful and useful.
