Sometimes, I go to estate sales that blow me away. This dress is from one such sale, probably the best estate sale i have ever been too. It was the former house and estate of Florida music professor and sheet music baron Robert Whitford, whose extensive library of published sheet music dates back to the 1940s. Judging by various original photos that i found at the sale, his wife also appeared to have lived quite a colorful and interesting life as a young artist and burlesque show girl in the 1930s and early 1940s. In later years, however, Mrs. Robert Whitford dedicated herself to the art of needlework. You name it, and if it could possibly be knitted or crocheted, rest assured that Mrs. Robert Whitford had attempted it with vigor!! The sale contained nearly 300 hand knit and crocheted pieces from this amazing lady - everything from dresses, scarves, wraps and ponchos to an INCREDIBLE red, yellow, and navy blue Modtastic Go Go shorts set with matching vest and tam hat!!! And so, without further ado, I present to you the artistry of Mrs. Robert Whitford. May she rest content in the knowledge that her creations live on.

This piece is an incredible 60s/70s hand knit dress in a shocking red!! The dress features COOL extra long puffed poet sleeves complete with knit cuffs, drawstring belt, and seriously FUNKY retro appeal.

Excellent vintage condition with no holes or snags. There is some VERY minor discoloration or color inconsistency in the yarn of the dress -- nothing very marked, just the normal wear and tear of time on a very bright yarn!!

PLEASE CLICK ON THE PHOTOS TO OPEN THEM IN A SEPARATE WINDOW AND GET BETTER QUALITY AND RESOLUTION!! THANKS!!
