This was in surprisingly good condition found in a box of my grandmother’s things. I have no idea of all the articles of clothing that this one was chosen to be kept. Grandma owned a lot of nice clothing. She had an eye for fashion, frequenting high end department stores such as Macy’s, Bullocks and Saks. So far I haven’t found a picture of someone wearing it but how cool would that be? There is only a minimal amount of wear to the inner insulated quilting and the red velvet isn’t as soft as I’m sure it used to be when it was brand new but it’s definitely wearable. I don’t know exactly what I’m going to do with this, but it would be a shame to toss it out after having it kept so pristine after all these years.
Would make a very pretty Little Red Riding Hood costume… what do you think?
