I'm not sure why, but whenever I come across another one of my "old" dresses, I just want to dress Penny up in it and take pictures! You all don't mind, do you? I think this one is from the 80's.......
..... from back in the days when I used to get dressed up for dinner dates, and I also liked to dress up a bit if I needed to hostess a night at the restaurant. A simple style in a tiny red calico, but I loved the detailing on the bodice:

Yes, indeed - I truly have held onto an awful lot of stuff!
