The crocheted vest

Since it appeared on Miu Miu's runway,
the crocheted vest, circa 1972, is making a comeback.
Even Jane Aldridge of Sea of Shoes showed off her recent thrift store find.
I sported this chic article of clothing in my 3rd grade class photo.
A day not wearing my Catholic school uniform was indeed a special day, so
what to wear for the class pic was not a decision made in haste.
I remember my mother making this red, white, and blue vest.
I'm certain the colors were not chosen at random.
Although a few years shy of the bicentennial, I was already very patriotic.
