#144: Roses are Red

October 14, 2010

Part city slicker, part cowgirl.

1930’s cowgirl shirt embroidered with red roses and made from gabardine.* I found it in the sleepy attic of an antique shop in Ithaca, NY.

*Read that!

Just like dear Dale!

    The shirt is lovely & a great find. It’s not gabardine though…gabardine has a diagonal twill weave & thanks to your excellent detail photos, I can see that your shirt is plain woven.

    I enjoy your carefully curated blog posts!
