This is my "new" favorite outfit, with new in quotes because the dress is vintage and the sweater has been reworked. I am very happy with the way this turned out!
The dress has the original Ladies Garmet Workers label inside.
I must tell you - I don't believe clothes are made to this level of quality anymore. Look at the finishing for the edge. And, the pockets and zipper facing are both lined in the contrasting fabric. The construction of this piece is a thing to admire (and learn from!).
The DH calls this my June Cleaver look. That works for me, as I describe my style as classic with an edge. I like the length of the skirt, just below my kneee. It's good and swishy when I walk.
Here's the dress without the sweater.
More on the sweather in a separate post. Roxyred found this on one of her many vintage/thrifting excursions! Thank you! I love it!
