Just a quick post to show the 1930s dress in action! I got to wear the spicy-colored dress shortly after finishing it to a friend's 1930s themed birthday party (1930s for her 30th--brilliant idea!)
Accessorized with: Red t-strap shoes that approximate vintage (though not quite...I'd love to get a more suitable pair!)
Gold leaf-motif headband
Pearl earrings--in looking at 30s era photos and movies, simple studs seemed to be used fairly often
Red lipstick (that wore off after a couple cocktails and was never reapplied)
It was a family-friendly event, so E made the rounds before getting tucked into bed for the night. Too bad I didn't have time for a 1930s accurate dress for her, too!
We rounded out a lovely evening with some casino-style action. Though none of us really knew how to play roulette, we had authentic cocktails by our masterful bartender.
Next up--I plan to make a 1940s Easter dress. I seem to do better when I have a specific goal or event in mind--do you find that you tend to make clothes or work on projects for a specific event or deadline, or do you create whatever strikes your fancy?
