I want this dress….
Thought I could use Simplicity 3673 and have the top half made from different material (using collar from my new fave pattern) to bottom half to give a similar effect. A cut’n'shut dress of sorts.
…..and the hat and I quite like the haircut too…which gets me onto another subject hairstyles and haircuts. I’m not sure what is the best haircut to have. I hear about the legendary ‘middy’ haircut, but as I’m not styling my hair vintage all the time I’m not sure it would be that flattering unstyled.
I’ve been looking for a shorter hairdo that will look good when cut and then grow out into a middy. Taking inspiration from some vintage pattern artwork. Any suggestions for good short-ish haircuts?
Is the liberty cut the same as a middy?
Pathe site is good for inspiration but the videos never have quite enough detail to work it out myself…
And this is quite interesting the 50′s does 20′s…
I like how you can see the connection between clothes and the hair styles. I tend to err towards 40′s mainly but I do span 20′s/30′s/50′s so finding a cut that fits all of those eras is really hard.
(I was debating if I should post this as its not purely sewing but hair is as important when it comes to setting off that retro outfit)
