Vintage Wool Dress
I bought this wool dress at a thrift store for $10. I didn’t need it. Perhaps I shouldn’t have got it. But it was interesting…
The dress looks to be from the 1950s. It has kimono sleeves (which makes the top feel a bit large on me). It sort of fits. But I love all the details the dress has. I love the cute little collar. I like the buttons down the front. I adore the decorative stitching the top has (that goes all the way around). I love the pleated skirt. And the color is nice.
The dress needs some mending. It has maybe two small holes, the buttons are a little loose, and the sleeve stitching may need to be fixed. Truthfully, this warm wool dress isn’t the most useful of dresses (just because it’s only really cold a few months out of the year). But I would totally wear this dress…once I get around to fixing it.
