Here's what Ruth and I wore to the picnic. She borrowed her outfit from my closet, the jumper being from Fab Gabs, and the blouse thrifted, originally from H&M. I was really surprised when I found the blouse and saw the label, it's the perfect late 30s design, in the perfect colors and print. When I wear it to threads I'll have to make a pattern from it, I just love finding modern pieces that can fit in a vintage wardrobe so well.
I made my dress combining the patterns for the skirt of a 30s outfit, and the top from a late 30s/early 40s dress. The bakelite necklace and bracelet are both from Expo, I thought the necklace especially appropriate for a picnic :)
I found the fabric at an estate sale and just love it, there's lots more leftover!All the materials for the dress came to about four cents. Thanks goodness for estate sales. Even a good deal by 1938 standards!
