TRUE VINTAGE 1960’S – 1970’S HOUSEDRESS: HOME-SEWN CHRISTMAS FROCK?

During my most recent investigatory episode, this garment is the first that I spied. Aside from the lace trim and piecing on the bodice, there’s nothing remarkable here – no pockets, extra trim or embroidery and the tailoring isn’t exceptional. However, I did zoom in on the fabric. Looks like a heavy woven cotton in a red, green and black plaid. Hmm . . . . . . . . what was in this seamstress’s mind? Holiday cheer? Little House on the Prairie, the winter months? In virtually original condition, it was worth picking up.

So, I got it home and tried it on. It looked very small, but fits me to a T! You’ll see later how good it may look on Stella. (I really miss my assistants when working at satellite locations.) It’s doubtful I’ll keep it in the long run, but it does have it’s own story to tell. More to come. Stay tuned . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
