To Seersucker, With Love

This post was written by Lindy Shopper.

This summer I’ve grown to appreciate seersucker fabric more and more, not just as a Southerner, but as a sartorial gift that bestows charm, ventilation, and wrinkle-resistance upon its wearer. It really is an ideal fabric for swing dancers, a respite from the heat of the air and our own bodies, that is lightweight, breathable, practical, movable, and easy to pack. I’ve decided to compile some vintage and reproduction seersucker lovelies from Etsy to celebrate this wonderful fabric today:
