That dress I found in an op-shop for $20. Makes me pretty happy. Usually it lives on my mannequin, Katie.
Random bit of background for you, Katie was my grandmother's dressmaking mannequin. After the war, returned service women were given a small amount of money to put towards furthering their career. My grandmother was a dress maker and she brought Katie, hand made to her own measurements in 1946. My grandmother is now mostly blind and Katie makes her sad so she has come to live with me.
And that is the story of Katie.
