Outfit: Grandma's 1950's Pink Suit Set


Why hello! I am gone at camp, but I had some posts saved up for a special occasion, so I thought this was a good opportunity to use those up!
This is an ensemble I wore to church a couple of weekends ago. I got this rather astounding pink suit set that my grandmother made herself in the 1950's. I hadn't worn it until now because it was rather crumpled up and I had specific instructions from grandma NOT to iron this material. It still isn't perfectly wrinkle free, but I couldn't wait another moment to wear it. It is slightly too large in the shoulders for me, but pish posh I don't care! I love the shoulder/collar detailing, the fit of the waist/skirt, and the adorable little matching jacket with a peter pan collar! Oh grandma, can I just get in a time machine and see all of the things you saw while wearing this suit? I want to know!










God Bless!

I can't believe that was your grandmothers! Its so beautiful and its so special that she still had that to be able to give to you. Im sure its a piece you'll always cherish. While my grandmother never had clothes to me she did have some jewelry and I know its nice to always think of her when I wear it. http://theredlipchronicles.blogspot.com
