I was fortunate, another time, to find a true vintage dress in a large size. This time it’s also much older – dating from the 1960’s to early 1970’s, but the buttons are probably from the 1940’s or Fifties. Needless to say, it’s a home-sewn garment; very simply- but well-made. The good construction also speaks to its age because most women stopped sewing clothing after the Seventies and lost their skills. The fabric is pretty but not high-quality. If you can zoom in on the buttons, they are the best part of this dress, to me, aside from the true vintage heritage.
