Joining in with the other ladies of Elizabeth's Needle and ThREAD :)
I was SO HOT! It was in the upper 90s* at this point, and although my dress is lovely and cool cotton, I was STILL hot. But then, that is not a change from the last couple of weeks.
I have a lovely 1940s hairstyle (courtesy of Solanah's tutorial) and a 1960s basket bag. The hat and shoes are modern LOL but suit the era. The dress is from a 1930's pattern, Simplicity 2788.
I made view 1 (left), and just for your information, I later upgraded my belt with a vintage dark red buckle I bought in an antique shop. It looked much better once I did!
I had originally planned to add rickrack (as shown on the envelope) but I could not find it in either burgundy or cream (the colours of my dress). I ended up using a cream coloured trim.
However, my dress received lots of compliments throughout the day, as did my hat ;) And I was happy! This has been sitting in my UFO basket for ages, so now it has been moved, I am content!
