Vintage Post: What's Black & White & Red All Over?

Plaid, that's what! Worn twice, even.
(No, this isn't the failed-tea dress; that is currently still in the naughty pile. This plaid was much better behaved!)

Quick-Post: Vintage Not-Tea

I've been wanting to have a vintage tea in the city for a couple of years now, and holiday season sounded perfect for it! Well, it ended up being somewhat less than perfect; couldn't get a reservation anyplace I wanted, several people bailed due to snow, and the dress I was making turned out horribly at the try-on point.

(I'm still poking away at that dress, and intend to either make a "yes, I don't hate this dress" or "do not under any circumstances buy this pattern" post soon. It's a red and green plaid so I should finish it while it's still seasonably wearable!)
