Another home-sewn frock, this time for school or work. The spots are just from the camera and a little water at the hem – the condition is WONDERFUL! Thanks for bearing with me in the less-than-ideal publishing conditions. Can’t wait to put it on Stella or Giselle for a really good presentation.
Soft knit fabric with embroidered ribbon – such a popular trimming at that mid-century time. Dolman sleeves and a flared hem – pretty style! It all screams late 1960’s and was another at-home creation that captured some girl’s imagination back in the day. Most of us get a thrill from shopping, but can you imagine the step-by-step anticipation and excitement of watching a custom-designed frock come together? Back in the Sixties and before, that’s what a lot of women experienced.
So, I’ve been from classy designers’ elegant designs to stitching on the dining room table in less than two weeks. What’s coming next? You just never know . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
