Everything Old Is Still New Again
A fall shirt, from ATL.
Original price $40, but I got it for $8 thanks to savvy coupon-handling.
The whole time I had it on I kept thinking "I've worn this before."
The smocking, the burgundy... and something was very familiar about those little roses.
Then I remembered. When I was nine or ten my mother made me a dress out of very similar material. The same little rose pattern, nearly the same color. It even had rows of smocking across the front, all hand-sewn.
Mom, if you scan/send me a picture of me wearing that dress I'll post it on the blog, along with a current pic of me in the shirt. ^__^
