The Last of the Hot House Dresses

After all, the Fall Equinox has arrived.

~ and I had to add leggings, boots and a jacket ~

~ plus it was windy ~

The brocade jacket was something I unearthed from the archives, made about 30 years ago or so.  Who knows from what pattern.

~ Here worn with one of the obi's I've concocted ~

I liked it with the obi before I saw these pictures.  Now I think it works better without.  Whatever.

~ ah, free at last ~

~ What do you think? ~

The dress is made from what was called China Silk and was a real pain to sew.  (I do luv the print though.)  It kept puckering, which is why it is inundated with lace trim.  But I guess it came out alright in the end.

~ ending with the ole shoe shot from ebay ~

I'm rushing on over to Patti's Not Dead Yet Style and then Catherine's I Will Wear What I Like when she goes live. Hope to see you all there. 


  1. those cool boots! and the last of the house-dresses is a beauty, I love the print too. Jealous of you needing a jacket! xox


    1. Yeah, they're all fiber and elastic except for a bit of leather at the heel. Real comfy. That's #6 for the hot house dresses. Thank goodness it's all the way down to the 60s now and I can stop. It's onto coats, I guess.

  2. I do like the pattern on your house dress, so good with those great boots. Hope your Fall is a good one .

  3. I'm am excited for "layering season" to begin! Pretty pattern on this dress; I like it better without the obi belt too. I have a pair of "sneaker boots" that look like those shoes. They are super comfy.

  4. This is quite inspirational. As always. All the colors and most of the textures.
    Coat dresses? I had a really pretty china silk I'd made into a dress. Fabric was so clingy, it would have worked better as a bowl cover. Cotton slip didn't help, so off it went to somewhere else.I hope it's happier.
    Seattle is jacket time but not quite raincoat all the time. Guess I should finish altering my Bill Cunningham Tribute jacket pronto.

  5. Gorgeous!! Love that brocade jacket and the print on your dress. x
