Old Hollywood Glamour Dress- Retro 1950s at its best. This is the dress of choice to wear to this years annual Memorial Celebration on April 3. Initially I thought of wearing a colourful version but decided since I do not have a “little black dress” to follow my girl, Kacy’s idea, and make it in black. A crepe will do just nicely and I found just the thing on eBay.
Meanwhile, check out what I just purchased to go with her.
In my mind’s eye this will be a beautiful outfit for the occasion. My 1930s Life Stride peep toe pumps will surely complement the look.
Last but not least I would love a pair of cuban-styled nylons, but that may be pushing it for my budget. I may have to make due with a pair of black Hanes Sheer Silk Reflections. We’ll see.
The bedsheet muslin went well with my cutting out the largest size on the pattern. I did not do a FBA. Now, here’s the thing – I have been reading that most patterns are made for a “B” cup. My girls are “DD”!!!
Looking unsuccessfully for black organza gloves I settled for the black crochet gloves below:
Here’s hoping they arrive in time for the Memorial! 🙂
Stay tuned for the lyrically styled version of this beautiful frock.
