Pink 1950's RicRac Dress....Handmade!

I love that some sweet, clever, inspired, creative lady, 50 odd years ago, made this!

I love that she chose a baby pink cotton, that has rough bits in (like dupion silk).

I love that she used two sizes of ricrac.

I love that she was inspired to curve the top section of ricrac round the body to meet the waist.

I love that she clearly loved ricrac as much as me.

I love that we are the same size....

I think I love her!
