dress - vintage, thrifted 

it was rainy november evening
last year
i was walking, to clear my head..
been rather stressed out back then
that last couple months of excavations were quite bad..
so.. i was walking
and then i saw this crazy print in a thrift shop window
i couldn't tell what the garment looked like
but the print made me smile
(and i wasn't smiling a lot back then)
so i had to see what it was
..
it was a dress
that was ridiculously small
i tried it on
well.. tried to try it on
and got stuck in it
in one of those 'mr bean' moments
took me some 5 minutes to free myself from it..
but i bought it anyways
it made me smile, after all
..
altering it wasn't an option
it's a beautifully made dress
(and i believe it's home made one, 
has only simple machine seams, and a lot of neat hand stitching
and handmade buttonholes too)
i guess it's from late 60's or early 70's
can't be sure, if someone has better idea, i'm happy to hear it..
it's made of that beautiful colorful wool fabric
(or some sort of wool blend
no way in hell i'm burn testing it to find out)
and fully lined
and has a matching belt
..
almost a year later i can finally wear it..
it's still a bit snug..
was made for someone with narrow shoulders
so no matter how much weight i lose,
it's never going to fit just right
but i can live with that
..
and it still makes me smile
