Old Fashioned

mari's emporium

Old fashioned vibes down country lanes,
Mari’s Emporium,
she can explain.
Frocks for dances and weddings too,
the swinging sixties,
just wait in the queue!

Back to the old days
when fabric was cheap
one of a kind garments
always unique.
Tailored for your pleasure
in any style,
something casual
or perhaps versatile?
Gone are the days when we designed our own,
unstitch the hem
when we had outgrown.

I remember Gran pinning lace to her dress,
it was her secret
she
later confessed,
restyling clothes,
that had gone out of fashion
dressed to the nines,
she looked rather smashing…
