Back in the ’60’s and early ’70’s (even in the 1950’s!) some really flattering and pretty sweater dresses were popular. Some were two-piece and some, like this one, were body-hugging sheaths. They were of a high quality in terms of the construction and styling and they are SOOO comfortable to wear!
I love finding knits that have the pattern on both sides – not just in the front; rib-knit cuffs that fit well and hold their shape; a matching belt; a well-done hemline; a soft yarn that is easy-care and holds up it’s appearance over time.
I haven’t found one of these in a long time – they’re that rare. And, with the original belt in fabulous overall condition and one of my favorite colors – Whooeeeeeeeee! Didn’t expect this, but, the craft just continues to show me that – you just never know . . … . . . . .
