Heather mentioned that she sold some of her older dresses.
What constitutes "dress retirement age" to you? When you get tired of them or when they are a few years old and you have so many newer ones to wear (that's where I'm at now!) I'm having trouble parting with some of the older ones ,but I want to make and wear new ones. I'm thinking of giving one of my first outfits to a new lady in the group but it has sentimental value. (I'm hopeless.)
The extra bedroom closet holds all my period outfits. (Heather probably has 2 or 3 extra closets! Wow! 28 dresses!)

I really only retire outfits when they don't fit anymore, and they get retired to a box in the closet of the guest room . However, most of my costumes at the moment are Renaissance era rather than Victorian. My only Victorian gown is a lovely royal blue moire taffeta ballgown, ca. 1868, that just doesn't fit . I still have the bodice hanging in my closet, though. The skirt is folded up somewhere, I believe. It needs to go to the cleaners . I need to get a new corset made, and then see if my old ball gown is salvageable. And get to work on my new one .
