I don't know why, but I was having the hardest time getting pictures of this dress- I think the color might be more right in the full length shot, but it doesn't show my favorite detail - the little asian neckline - that shows up in the smaller, more green shot. Anyway, super cute, eh?
I think this is vintage anyway - it's definitely vintage double knit fabric, and there's a lot of hand sewing inside, but the seams are serged. I know my grandma had a serger, but I think it was pretty newfangled at the time. So not impossible, but I just don't feel like I see it a lot. Eileen, I feel like you'll know about this!
I also had to buy these mittens because they'd obviously been lovingly handknit and they didn't deserve to be in a thrift shop for $1.99. I rescued them. and I'll wear them because I love them!
I also got a fantastic red velvet blazer, which is a little tight in the upper sleeves, but it was too great to pass up, so bought it with the hope that maybe I can melt off a little arm flab! surely all this walnut work will do it!!
