    Wife and I were going through some stuff in her attic and found these vintage women's clothing. I only recognize the black skirt as looking like it's from the 50s, the rest she only knows who they belonged too, a great-great aunt, which would date them to possibly the early 1900s since we're both middle-aged. Hoping we could find some information on them.

    I see there are labels in at least one of the garments. Might be good if you can post photos of any labels (manufacturers labels, fabric information etc). They should help to date them.

    I couldn't find the black skirt, but of the others I only found one with a label. It appears that it may be British, which makes sense because my wife's parents were British.

    Grey and Peach Dress - 1950s
    Black Lace dress - 1950s
    Plain Black dress 1940s. Black skirt probably 1950s. Hard to tell as black does make it hard to see detail properly. Usually unlined indicates 50s on a pencil skirt like this.
    Cream Jacket later 1940s

    Hope this helps!
