The peas are plump this year..
From the rains..
From the long cold winter below the snow..
I walked the long rows in the early heat..
Bonnet tight despite the wind..
Scissors in hand..
Peas in pocket.
The heat will be here soon.
Hand made vintage..I imagine that it’s 1970’s though it’s hard to know when it was made exactly..
A 3 piece set..dress, bonnet and little bag..
The floral calico is a rich yellow like the fields of mustard flower..
With teeny red and white flowers..
The tailoring of the dress is so darling..
Drawstring scoop neckline..
Huge puffed shoulder and short sleeve with a gathered elastic ruffle cuff..
Tie details at the underbust..
Maxi length skirt with a nice sweep..
I used a petticoat to show the fullness of the hem..
Zips up the back with a Talon zipper.
The bonnet is pintucked calico trimmed with ruffled eyelet lace..
Ties under the neck..
White grosgrain ribbon adjustment at the back of the neck..
Classic bonnet! So cute!
The bag is made of calico and white venise lace..
A little drawstring pouch that adjust with a grosgrain ribbon that ties in a bow..
a long white grosgrain ribbon strap..
Shown with a petticoat under the skirt to show fullness and is not included with the dress.
Excellent condition…the seamstress work is very nice..a couple small seam repairs
Fits a vintage size 7
top of shoulder to underbust 11”
