Remember on Friday when I said I had originally made a new skirt for my Peggy costume but it came out much too 50's? Well, here is that skirt! Made from a thick navy blue wool it should be perfect for the rest of fall and into the snowy depths of winter. The bow blouse is a new addition too, I made it as a sorta test run of my new bow blouse pattern and bishop sleeves. I love how billowy the sleeves turned out! It's too much fun to prance around in a blouse like this!
I went a bit hat crazy last month and invested in a few new vintage toppers for my collection. This one is a fairly standard velvet and satin 50's hat, but in bright golden yellow! I am so excited to pair this hat with several pieces in my closet that have the same yellow in the print. I'd like to get a new yellow belt though, as the one I'm wearing here doesn't match as close as I'd like, and I would kill for a pair of vintage gloves this color too!
It is another glorious fall day again here, and oddly it is quite warm out! I'll take it, I'm no fool, I know snow is just around the corner! (knocks on wood, throws salt over her shoulder, etc.)
