Sunday- Go- To- Meeting Dress

Just thought I'd give a sneak peek at my "Easter" dress. From THIS vogue pattern.

I've had this pattern for ages, and unfortunately, It was several sizes too small. So I've added quite a space in each piece, and it's coming together very well!

Found this material at JoAnn's on sale.

Finished, Smooth Sailin.

Well here they are, a smashing new pair of Smooth Sailin shorts! What to ya'll think?

Edwardian photoshoot

My friend Katie is taking a photography class in college  and she called me last week to ask me if  I would go with her to take some photos. Of course I said yes! 
And then she made the mistake of saying "And you can dress up." 

*evil grin* 

I narrowed myself down to two costumes, but it was still a lug... all those petticoats and underthings... Shoes... ect. 

I ended up only using this one due to lack of daylight. We headed up to Cades Cove after she got off work at 3:00 and by the time we got up there things were getting dark. 

Now I can't remember if I ever blogged about this outfit before since it was made in my long internet-less days. 

The blouse is from Folkwear's "Gibson Girl" shirtwaist and the skirt is from Butterick 3418 (Now OOP I think) 

There are many more photos to come, but these were some that I begged her to take on my Iphone. What do you think?

Mini Miracle Workers

This weekend I finally got the chance to go Antiquing with my parents. I was so excited to be able to find some 50's- 60's dresses that fit tolerably well. (Which is why you won't be seeing them yet... they, or I need work before they look good)  Not to mention the two new hats that I adore!

But the best thing in my opinion is these!

Mom found a grab bag full of these little gems!

Vintage wave clips!

I'm sorry for all the exclamation points, but I just couldn't, and can't, hold in my excitement. I couldn't wait to reset my hair and try these little babies out. My First attempt, pictured here, I simply sprayed it heavy, and they immediately fell back out... :/

So these are meant for wet sets only.

No giving up though! I tried again, with just one side, Dampening it first.

And guess what? Voila! Perfection!

They're rather severe for a marcel, any tips on taming them down?

Be that as it may, they'll be perfect for 20's- 30's finger waves!

Can't wait to give them a try!
