Last night I found myself going through my hats, most of which are very 18th century inspired, and were created for historic costume not vintage everyday wear. I was trying to figure out how to style some of them so I can actually get to wear them more often. I figured that little historic hats aren't that different from 1940's tilt hats right?
I stole this skirt from my mom years ago, it was hers in the 80's and is therefore nearly"vintage" now. I think it looks rather 1940's and I have really come to like it! I am still looking for sheer navy tights, these nude fishnets have a thick black seam up the back and are fun, but are neither very accurate or well made. I am on the hunt for a finer nude fishnet, with smaller netting and a back-seam, for the upcoming year ahead. I am having a hard time not dreaming of my summer wardrobe already, the perils of winter! I have so many sewing projects I want to complete, I wish I could clone myself and one of me could stay home sewing all day!
I want to start making hats again, this time focusing on more 20th century vintage styles. Another To-Do to add to my already long list!
