Stitch fix stylist Abby: this dress is cute and would be a much more flattering style on me than the other 3 sundresses I've received that were boxy. posted this already but this is exactly the kind of sundresses I want for my fix. It's super casual with a perfect neckline. It's fitted at the top and flowy at the bottom.
Treadle sewing machine - Mom and Ernie both had models similar to this! Learned to sew real stuff on Mom's treadle machine. I do wish so very much she hadn't put it out in the alley for trash when she got her modern portable Kenmore electric sewing machine.
