I have to start by saying how much I love houndstooth and particularly older garments in this pattern. I am also aware that this pattern can be a bit much for petite me... but I found this dress in my fave vintage store. It appears to be hand/home made as it has no labels. It is wool and really beautifully made.
The shoulders straps are too long so I will need to have them taken up a bit by my dressmaker.
However what I am trying to decide is do I have the skirt tapered, or do I leave it as an A line??
I rarley wear Aline skirts as I am concerned that they look frumpy on me. But I think this looks kind of fun.? What do you think??
I have popped one of my striped tops underneath as this is most likely how I envisage wearing the dress. I like the idea of my red stiped top with it also. Alternatively I have a couple of polka dot blouses that could be good also. And I am seeing a crop jacket over it as well.
When I was younger I wore a more alternate and quirky style and I would like to revisit that in a way that looks good but is still appropriate for my age and I think that's why this dress appealed to .
