What's Penny Wearing? #34 Red Calico

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:

And a close-up of the sleeve and that pretty work on the bodice:

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

I think I actually remember this one. Cute and kind of old fashioned with a twist. Love T

How cute this is. You must have been all of a size 4 or something? You must be petite and cute. I could have never worn a dress like this. I was just too tall.
Love the fabric....

I wish I had a Penny to play with, because I just found my 8th grade graduation dress in the attic! So don't feel bad about holding onto stuff. At least your old dress is cute. What the heck am I going to do with a floor length lime green polyester dress???
