    I have patterns with frills like this dating from around the mid 1940's mark (maybe a tad later too) mind you date wise -fashions here in the uk differ slightly. Really cute though and a lovely colour to boot- what more can you ask for in a jumper!:rolleyes:

    deadpandiva That top is super cute!

    I went to goodwill to find a cardi to try the tutorial on remaking a cardigan. No sweat, I thought, and instead of finding one that needed some remaking, I found this!

    It's missing exactly one pearl and it's actually a light camel color (it shows up six different colors in the pics.) I have no idea on the label, any guesses? I have not yet called my mom to hear how Best & co fit in the New York shopping landscape.

    Wow, SugarKitten- love the applique and pearls on that sweater! So unique and dainty. Very pretty.

    Just got this adorable little 30s sweater in the mail. Fits like a dream! So excited, cause I usually don't see this type of thing outside of catalogs!

    Best and Co was pretty high class stuff. I've seen a lot of ads of theirs in old Vogue magazines. Probably equivalent to Bloomies today.

    Lauren, I love the tie! the top is adorable, but now you have to romp in a grassy field with an old fashioned tennis racket! Do you have something specific in mind to pair with it?

    "Dainty" is usually not my thing, but I'm hoping the cardi stays on the fun, and not the 'grandma' side of things.

    deadpandiva, Goodwill is the second largest contributor to my wardrobe, right behind Tulle's sale days. (Does anyone else shop there? www.tulle4us.com ?)) I have a lot of 4 dollar tops/7 dollar dresses.) I guess there are a lot of people who goodwill old Granny's stuff around here in CT, and I take full advantage! There was a 'Bergdorf Miss' black wool dress too, but on it looked much more 80's. I'll grab a pic if anyone wants to see, I think it was 10$

    as a cardiganholic I approve of your sweater SugarKitten.

    the label KittnGora makes it worth buying for sure.

    Here's my recent find from the flea market. The dress is originally from Denmark and it's from the 1930's.
    It cost only 9€.

    Fuzzy Lizzie, I love Lanz too! Though I am more partial to the mainstream sundresses rather than the traditional drindl styles. I have several of the sundresses and I'm always looking for more! :eusa_clap
