The jumper design was inspired by this image. It is an image from an old pattern. It looks rather Edwardian, doesn't it?
Here is a close-up of the bodice. In my next post I will show you the chemise under it.
I always enjoy seeing another lady wearing feminine clothing. They stand out. They arrest my attention and cheer me up. One time in particular, I remember a woman of about 30 walking through Wal Mart. She immediately caught my eye for she had on a hat. It was not frilly or out of place in the least. It was just an everyday felt hat that looked sharp on her, and seemed to be a natural part of who she was. If I remember correctly, she was wearing a lavender sweater which looked so lovely with her brown skin, and a neutral skirt. She looked sharp ~ I think she must have been sharp!
