Isn’t this the neatest and most unusual thing?
It’s from the mid to late 1960’s and made of soft wool – knit on top, and crocheted below with an acetate lining. Looks like a working-girl’s dress, or maybe for a serious student.
I’d never seen one just like this before! Although the skirt looks hand-done, the dress was commercially-made. It’s so much fun, and just right for this time of year when, at least some days, it’s getting pretty cold. But, the nice thing about this wool, and another one I’ll show you soon, is that it’s so soft you can wear it without a slip and not feel prickled at all.
So many uncommon finds, and it just keeps on going . . . . . . . .
