Brooklyn, New Yo...
I get a lot of cloth from Grandma’s friends too. I got a nice box of stuff years ago with this ridiculous fabric on top and I thought “My god! This is the ugliest fabric I have ever seen.” But I kept seeing it digging for materials and it kind of grew on me. I pictured it as a very slim simple dress and couldn’t wait to finish it and wear it.
Ugly dress and I have been to many functions together where I wanted to look a little obnoxious. I was kind of sad when I lost weight and it no longer fit so I took it in a few weeks ago. It’s nicely lined in a light blue cotton with boning inside. This is also from Vogue 8184
