Red Bata de Cola

 

With the lack of good weather to air dry clothes most of the year round, it is quite common to find people in the UK hanging their wet laundry on the radiators in their homes.


Laundry day at chez Veshoevius is a little, shall we say, unconventional!  Even flamenco costumes need laundering.  Don't even get me started on how long it takes to iron the damn thing!

Red Bata de Cola: bought second hand and altered in Spain

  1. That is one gorgeous frock!
    Jon's a sworn ironing dodger and he taught me to shake the hell out of a newly washed item and to hang it to dry on a coat hanger - ideally in the bathroom or kitchen where it's warm. The creases are minimal. xxx

  2. Oh, I know! We don't have a tumble dryer, and always have washing draped all over the shop if I can't line dry it!
    That dress is such a stunner, but I can imagine all those ruffles take FOREVER to iron. I think I will try Jon's trick too, I feel I spend far too much of my time ironing... xxxx

  3. Those red ruffles are so gorgeous, they look like art on the radiator. And one of my favourite things about the lovely weather we've been having is being able to dry everything on the washing line. Sun and the stiff coastal breezes we almost always have around here keep the ironing to a minimum.

  6. It's so humid here. Hardly anyone bothers with outdoor drying as it takes forever. I'm a huge fan of that spray wrinkle remover ... providing it's not silk. Or satin. Lovely for knits.
    Say, it does look pretty over your radiator, though!

  9. I'm very behind on my commenting and just caught up on the gorgeous posts that I missed. The dress, the skirt and now a glimpse of the red of your flamenco costume, making my morning complete.

  10. Even as it hangs look how artful and beautiful the drape of it is. I still hang items like this! I am not a fan of doing loads of laundry, but it must be done, and over the years I've invested in a lovely steamer for other items that knocks every wrinkle out in moments ... well, with patience, of course. :) x/Madison

  13. That gorgeous frock has her own personality ... I think she's very demanding, but she makes it worth your while;). I agree with iron-dodging ... I have perfected this art to cover dishes, sweeping and pretty much all housework. xoxo

  14. I want to wear that dress. SO GORGE! But laundering...this is where I am grateful to be an American. No lines here...but we have spacious laundry rooms in which to air dry, if need be. The laundry situation irritated the HELL out of me in Australia, I must admit.
