Delight in the details of this 1920s Eleanor Dress with its dropped waist that was the defining look of that era. The stripes in the dress are worked with two different yarns, one in silk and the other in wool. Knit this vintage dress in a pretty pastel shade and add a stitch of brilliance to your wardrobe.
