Vintage Love...everything old is new again

I love a classic design and I found it in this sweet little top from a 1972 Simplicity pattern. Remember I was talking about transitional weather clothes? Well this would look awesome with a turtleneck underneath and sweet little leggings. I absolutely adore this fabric. It's been curing in my stash for ages, it's Tracy Porter from Joann's and the hand of the fabric is just incredible, really a nice brushed cotton. I don't know what was wrong with me, but I only bought a yard at the time...I could kick myself. Oh well. Anyway, back to the tunic. Very sweet and I used some ribbon from a grab bag of ribbon I got at one of the Chez Ami sales. I think it looks pretty good...we'll just have to see how the ribbon holds up in the wash.
