Following in yesterday’s footsteps, here’s another summer-weight find but so cute that I had to pick it up. I haven’t seen true vintage plaid house-dresses often, and I just LOVE them. Wish you could feel this fabric – it’s the softest cotton imaginable – been loved and washed for many years and still looks wonderful!
Nothing could be simpler and more classic than this design, but it’s well-constructed and built to last. Ruffles around the pocket and pretty embroidery trim. It’s nice when practical clothing is also elegantly well-made and just plain fun. Makes housework like play-day (if your imagination is good!)
So, enjoy. Tomorrow we’ll get to see more new-to-me true vintage dresses (they’re ALWAYS true vintage) but still for every season of the year. If you travel, you just never know . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
