Fabrics vary from wool to cotton jersey, man-mades and mixtures, all good old favourites that have proved their insulation properties over past winters.

Truly, inspirationally perfect illustrations from Harpers and Queen, July 1972. I recently acquired an Annacat in the same print as the one above, in a slightly different cut, and I have another dress in the exact same cut but a plain green fabric. Annacat dresses make me happy, this spread makes me happy.
