Collette Crepe and My Alfa

We took our 67 Alfa Romeo Giulia Sprint out for a drive yesterday. This old gal only makes a rare appearance around here because she isn’t kid safe and her clutch is a tough one to operate. I liked how the red complimented my Collette Crepe, which I am modeling for you here. If I make it again I will make the neckline lower.

This is my one of my lovely daughters who you have probably seen modeling the clothes I make. She was a baby when we bought this car and now she’s old enough to drive it! She’ll be sixteen in two weeks.

    You look like you stepped right out of a retro ad!

    I personally think the dress looks fabulous on you and didn’t notice the blousy matronly look or the too high neckline. It’s quite lovely!

    I agree with DrJulieAnn, I think the dress looks awesome on you and love the car.

    Love the dress! It’s entirely consistent with the rest of the image, especially the wonderful car you own.
