Another personal favorite that I saved from becoming part of a rag bag. Got it at a local church rummage sale here in Sonoma California. It was in two pieces. There was the back portion of the skirt that is a triangle in shape had been removed. I did not care I just loved the fabric and knew I could do something with it. Then as I was rummaging in a box not far from where the dress was...the back portion of the skirt ready to be sewn onto it's right place. There was some damage to on corner but with carful pinning and a solid back stitch it went together almost perfectly. The lines on this piece are just my favorite style. It reminds me of Garbo, Bette Davis,Kate Hepburn. They all looked so wonderful floating in the movies in a flowing bias cut robes, and dresses! I keep it in a red cedar(moths HATE this) protected closet. There is a maker label in it. I do not recall the name right now. I saved it from ruin!
