It had been hanging about the shop for a long time and consequently, was looking rough. There were several snags and exposed ends as well as couple of small holes. The neckline ribbon was in particularly bad shape. Well I finally got around to making the necessary repairs and replacing the ribbon. Now it looks smashing! I really, really, really like it! It feels fabulous and sexy.
I'm not sure how I managed the look of this lower photograph. It certainly wasn't on purpose but I love the fuzzy result. It reminds of a snap taken in the seventies and that's been exposed to the sun too long with it's wonky colour and faded quality.
