This crochet little lovely did not come from gramma's chest, but is a "limited two" skirt I got doing some back -to- school -thrifting.
I cannot imagine wearing it as a skirt seeing that it has large loopy see-through holes. Clearly something else would have to be worn beneath…and who has time to wear something that requires wearing something else first? Finding a coordinating top and bottom and appropriate bra and undies is more than enough work. So I cut it up the seam and presto!… the perfect shape for a crotchet purse. A little bit of sewing, more rooting around of my remnant fabric and other thrift finds for pockets and lining and I hope to have a purse soon. Maybe.
More work, but so much more fun than finding a slip.
Which begs the question… do women even wear them anymore?…I have not in years.
