What's Penny Wearing? #12

Well, we still have another week of summer, and today Penny Lane is wearing a vintage dress I wore to a summer wedding eighteen years ago:
A friend at work altered it to fit me, and I was delighted with it.
A nice vintage handbag to carry, a handkerchief, and a bracelet my husband gave me:
Beautiful clip-on earrings, which are actually more aqua in color than they look here, and the butterfly hair stick - both gifts from my sister Tina that just happen to go perfectly with my lace dress:
The dress on this pattern was so similar, I just had to save this image to show you. This is a picture of a lovely collage that was made by the ultra-talented Julie over at Jane's Apron.
It has already been sold in her etsy shop, but she sells all kinds of delightful creations!

Hey Faith! Wow- you have a good memory! Yes, Mardean (Mardy) Carter was the woman who made the Pendleton coat, as well. She was one very talented and crafty lady. I am glad you like my dress. I just wish I had someplace to wear it, now that it finally fits me again!
