Hello all! My name is Laura, and I am so very pleased to join this wonderful online community. I reside in
and adore vintage things. And although some may not understand my wardrobe choices, I simply cannot live without petticoats and other girly, old-fashioned things. Lately, I have been more drawn to the 1940s, but only because my closets are not happy with the numerous crinolined frocks they must accommodate. Novato, CA
As an introduction, I thought I would share one of my favorite vintage projects – a reproduction of a Vogue Couturier pattern I found over at Eva Dress.
Once I had my fabric in hand the real fun began. Am I the only one who takes extra special care with a project simply because the fabric is amazing? A muslin, thread tacks, and hand basting are absolutely required! This is one of the more complicated dresses I have worked on, and it is also one of my most successful.
So successful, in fact, that the dress demanded its own topper and hat.
I am so excited to share my journey in vintage fashion with you! Feel free to stop on by my brand new blog.
