I know that these are summer fun frocks but, for those who are wintering down south or just like to think about warmer climes, I had to show these recent finds and to buy them because of their good quality. Nice, heavy knits and well-cared-for by their original owners.
Love little shoulder ties, fun prints and empire waistlines. This style of dress is not unusual to see, but the quality is relatively rare. Most of the time, you have to go back to the 1960’s to find them as nice as these. Another genre that are often this good are the long dresses made in Hawaii – usually Sixties and before.
Of course, these discoveries didn’t thrill me as much as some that I make but still worth it. It’s always good to appreciate garments like these while you’re on the lookout for what’s around the corner – you just never know . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . …
