LA Times Mail Order #2720

The print on this one was totally stepping out of my comfort zone. I felt a little bit like I was wearing a Christmas tablecloth from the 60s. This was also the first time the pattern was wrong. The pocket placement is marked for the front panel but the picture shows it sprawling the side seams. The neckline also extends past my front bra clasp. Yikes! So I added a button and just cinched the top together.

I haven't been able to bring myself to wear this out of the house yet but I do wear it at home all the time. It's the equivalent of a 50s caftan. The fabric was basically free (I got it from the Honeoye Falls estate sale not long ago. I got a huge bag for $10)
