Day 9- 100 days project

This very brown smock dress from the 1960's suits the misty autumn day we had today! Leaves dropping all over the show and low mist and drizzle all day in the hills. Makes me feel like Kathy from 'Wuthering heights'. This smock has been 'home made' with very tidy hand stitching. I wonder about the woman who made it...not massed produced but fabric selected that she liked and then sewn to fit her shape. Who was she? These 'finds' always make me ponder questions about previous wearers. Who will wear them after me?
