What's Penny Wearing? # 104 Old Fashioned Red Calico With Lace

Yet another find from "the" estate sale is this wonderful old fashioned dress or costume:
Perfect in red calico, with crocheted lace trim all over:
 A nice full skirt:
 The sash that is tied around the waist with a bow in the back is a separate piece:
 This has a lot of nice details:
 If it wasn't too small for me, I swear I would keep it.
I don't know where I would wear it, but I'd think of something.
 Even if it was just a Halloween costume.
So wonderfully old-fashioned; it would be the perfect thing for a docent to wear at Columbia State Historic Park, where I used to work :
Very nice.

That is just SO beautiful! If I could ever fit into something like this (last time that happened was sometime in the early '80s, so not going to happen again in this lifetime) I would wear it for a wedding or something like that where you have to dress up a bit but not too formally. Heck, I'd find excuses to wear it anywhere lol!

Someone did a really nice job on this dress. It's lovely. Wear it somewhere... it's too pretty to sit in your closet.
