I made up this 30s ensemble a few years ago from Wearing History's Chic Ahoy pattern but alas it doesn't get much wear.
Part of that is because I made the green bits from an old sheet. (Just say no to sheets) And the other part is that the closures on the bottoms are quite complicated.
And I loath not being able to wear a regular bra.
But I remembered how ridiculously fun this really is to wear this weekend.
I've decided that I absolutely must make up another pair in a nicer fabric.
Although perhaps with a more practical top.
A rather unintended side effect of this wardrobe revival is that I'm now quite in love with the 30s.
If you've been following me on Facebook or Instagram, you'll have seen an influx of deco fabrics. Of course none of them are for the things I most want to make-beach pajamas and another set of these culottes.
I've never quite been bold enough to try 1930s fashions but I do think I'm ready now.
And part of sewing for yourself is going on adventures!
Are you ready for some 1930s outfits?
