In my most recent thrift haul, I scored a few pieces that were made in Italy in what I’m what appears to have been the 60’s.
This happy frock is one of them. :)
I’ve tried to find more information on the history of this brand, but have had no luck so far. :/
If you look closely, you’ll notice one of these things is not like the other.
When I got this dress home, I quickly noticed it was missing a button. Luckily I keep a big tin of leftover buttons in my sewing room. Not so luckily, I didn’t have any pale pink ones that were the correct size. I don’t think it’s too noticeable, do you? And if it is, I suppose I don’t really mind folks being able to tell I’m the kind of girl that knows how sew on a button. :)
If you’re the kind of girl (or guy!) who doesn’t know how to replace a button, check out this post I wrote a while back. I think it breaks it down pretty well.
