Since I have been working on a vintage pattern I decided to ramble through some old pictures and look what i found. My mother at age 14, this would be 1942, she was a fashionista at a very young age. I love the flower she wore in her hair and I love the way she had it pulled back in the front . And is that ruching on the bodice of her dress?! Very fashion forward. My grandmother made all of their clothes, how I wish I had paid more attention to what happened to her sewing machine and patterns.
I am still hard at work on my late 50’s dress. for the Fall For Cotton challenge. The fabric has been selected and the bodice has been cut. There is still a decision to come on the sleeves, but I guess I will cross that bridge when I get to it. Only picture I have to share today is the choices of fabric, Stef has chosen a khaki color for the bodice and a bold floral print for the skirt, we will be covering buttons in the skirt fabric and I hope to make her a belt to match the khaki . With only 17 days to get it finished and posted I know what my weekend will consist of. But that is not necessarily a bad thing!
Now it is off to watch Project Runway and get inspired!
One thought on “Another Throw Back Thursday and another Memory”
That’s so neat that you have those old pictures, I wish I had some older ones of my parents and grandparents. Thanks so much for stopping by chapter37!
