Not forties floral prints, no I'm talking about floral dress clips and silk flowers on hats! Though I certainly adore 1940s floral prints too, I'd love to get my hands on some one day. Also if anyone has lots of capitol just sitting around and wants to fund a reproduction rayon and cotton fabrics business I am happy to run it, just an idea ;)
This basic 1940's cold rayon dress in crisp black took me ages to make, but feels so worth it now as it is such a joy to wear. It has already featured here on the blog once before back in late May, and you can expect it will return later in the fall/winter too as it is just so versatile! I think this is one of my favorite silhouettes to wear, the puffed sleeves and stronger shoulder really balances out my curvier shape. This time I paired it with my black suede belt, grass green Bait sandal pumps, new marcasite dress clips, and the big black straw hat I bought myself for Christmas last year! I just love this hat, I am a straw hat fiend, and this one has got wonderful textures and fun purple flowers! I have a black and purple floral rayon in my stash just waiting to be turned into another dress to wear with this hat!
I hope you all had a most relaxing and enjoyable weekend, I spent most of mine sewing but that's no surprise is it!
