The Dress by Sophie Nicholls
The Dress has been compared to Chocolat, and there are similarities. But The Dress focuses on vintage clothing and has a slight feeling of magical realism to it, especially with the names like "Old Country" and sewing words into the clothes and of course, The Signals. It reminds me of a fairytale.
Although I'm really not into clothes, the descriptions of vintage clothing are really marvellous (though I know better than to try them on).
