Despite being head over heels in love with 30s knitwear, it wasn't until fairly recently that I noticed just how many dresses from this era were knitted and crocheted not out of yarn, but out of ribbon...ribbon which, to me, looks and feels like bias tape in some cases! I only own one such frock (great, something new to pine over), but find the whole notion of a dress made of ribbon incredibly romantic. However, they are certainly not nearly as cozy as the other vintage knits. Brrr, I'll be saving my dress for an outing in the spring or summer.
