Just right for Autumn, these dark tones are unusual and attractive. The fabric wasn’t expensive, but is distinctive with a slightly nubby stripe woven in. Take a zoom-in look. A very practical style, like the women of that day.
The buttons add some interest with silver rims and extras trimming the collar. That’s a smart place to put an eye-catching touch to the design with additional specialty buttons which would be hard to find. A lost button would have a ready replacement.
I’ll love this frock for a long time. As much as finding dressy, elegant and off-beat outfits thrills me, these more everyday, easy-wear items are still a favorite.
