Vintage Find!

My dad gave me a whole bag of scrap fabric that used to belong to my grandmother and this dress was in the bag just waiting to be discovered. It has no tags, grandma made everything she wore. You can see hand stitching on the inside seams, the shoulder detail is actually homemade binding strips with crochet flowers on top and there is not lining what so ever. Although I don't think that this dress was one worn by grandma it is most likely her sisters. In her old pattern stash she had lots of patterns that had her sisters name on them that she had made her and this is both the size and the style that she wore.
