This "fest drakt" my grandma made my aunt 40-50 years ago. My mom found it in the attic and gave it to Miss E. It's pretty short, but I think that was typical for that era. The shirt was really yellow, but a wash with bleach took care of that. My grandma made the shirt, dress and apron. She did a great job. And I'm sure my aunt loved to wear this at some festive time. Maybe Christmas or May 17th?
I love the little roses! Very shabby and chic! We will kepp this dress and pass it through the coming generations...so fun!
