Out on the town

Photobucket

Today a few of us met up with our friend Sara, who was visiting from Seattle. We lunched at Kenny and Zukes and shopped a bit here and there. I found some amazing shoes, you guys are going to love! 

We also had some photobooth fun, it's a must. 

Sara wore the most amazing 1940s siren suit, WITH A HOOD. I was gawking at it all afternoon. If it's two things I love it's jumpsuits and hoods. 

Janey was darling as ever in an aqua skirt and scarf (and I do love bobby socks and loafers with skirts), and Cassandra was wearing her hottest va-va-voom pants. 

I finished this dress up this morning, it used to be a skirt! I got it for $1, and it was such a perfect 40s style rayon despite being from the 90s, I had to do something with it. There was just enough fabric for this dress, and I like the way it turned out! I added the jabot last minute, it just needed something over the top, but I might find a collar for it instead.

I'm not a jumpsuit person but if I don't have THAT jumpsuit I don't think I can carry on living.

Ladies, you are so achingly stylish and beautiful! I can't get enough of everyone's look, and especially adore your new dress, Solanah - stellar work on transforming a skirt into that timelessly pretty gem.

You all look gorgeous! I love the dress you made....so pretty, and the fabric is divine :)

Laurence said...

What an amazing dress you made!!!
I would never guess it was a 90's fabric... you are so lucky to sew like that, I want to learn for years but never manage to do it with my full time engineer job, what a pity!

Anything with a hood or a cape I am all over. And your one dollar dress looks amazing. Did you take any photos of it as a work in progress? I want to see how you did it.

In The Heyday said...

Gosh yes, brilliant 40s style print for a more modern dress

RetroJetGirl said...

That dress is really cute, I love the shape. Do you know of any similar patterns that are easily available? Or is it *very* period-correct (e.g. not for a beginner, haha)

Leave the jabot, it is the finishing touch! Or, make it a detachable one so you can switch looks ;)
