Emerald green on May Day

The weather took a turn for the cold again, which gave me the perfect excuse to take this 1930s wool and rayon piece for another outing today. Some of you might remember that I wore it to Helsinki Vintage back in September. The dress is, unfortunately, not in the best of shape but is still very beautiful and comes with plenty of drool-worthy details. I love the soutache down the front and the deco hooks at the neck, the shirring at the shoulders and those darted sleeves. Gorgeous!

FYI: the framed photo in the last picture is one of my grandma's lovely headshots from around the 50s.
