This beautiful lacy top fooled both of my bosses. They both asked if it was an antique, and if they were convinced, then it's worth ten dollars (!!) at the thrift store. It doesn't have a real label in it, but it still had the little baggie with the spare button on the inside, and the care label is all in Japanese. The only thing I recognize is a phone number, so I might investigate a little further, just out of curiosity. I'm pretty sure the fabric is a silk and cotton blend, and there is a lovely variety of different lace trims, and all those sweet pintucks!
They say that this is the last day of sun, so I wore shorts to take advantage of it. The knee socks helped with the cool morning!
