Well, I don’t get any gold stars for blogging my sewing progress, now do I?
Let’s see…where we last left off, I was testing two different olive greens for the dress. I settled on one that I preferred over the other, but unfortunately my vendor did not have enough of the fabric for me to continue with that color combination! Sadness! So after all that olive green hemming and hawing, I needed to make a decision, pronto, on the color of the dress. I went with a cheerful buttery yellow, which I seem to recall was mentioned in the Vogue archives as being quite “in” that season…wish I had kept better track of my research!
Anyway, the black chiffon overtunic was embroidered around the edges in beads and sequins in a half-rosette pattern. It’s my hope to continue filling in the skirt with more design, perhaps by Costume College in August it will get done. I finished off the look with a vintage necklace and vintage shoes, both from Etsy, and the butterfly was a modern Conair hair barette from the drugstore that was MacGyver-ed onto a comb. The Epic Titanic Dinner I attended was an extraordinarily fun time, and here are the results of my hard work:
I may have accidentally forgotten to take photos of the back (the party was too much fun!) but more photo opps will present themselves as I wear this dress again.
