Recently, I've been really inspired by mid to late 1930s fashions. I really love the shape! I feel like the skirt shape is really the 1930s version of wide legged trousers-they skim over the hips and go straight down. I also feel like there are a lot of beautiful and practical things from this period. (Being in a depression probably had something to do with it.)
Also I saw this lovely ensemble:
by This Old Life (seriously, she's fabulous!) made from this pattern:
by Eva Dress. Seriously, I need to get this. I really want a cape for fall/winter too!
And here are some other lovelies:
I think my biggest difficulty with going 30s is the hair. Finger waves were in and I don't think I've ever done finger waves! I know some ladies sleep in the clips but I sleep on my side so that's really a no go. Guess I'll have to get tons of great 30s hats to cover my hair. ;)
