I also like that you can buy a few pieces and then change them around to make different looks. Like adding a shawl. That would give your outfit a whole new look.
I also love how you can get a dressy look or a causal one. I love the one above all in white with a black trim. I bought the pattern for this dress.
Now, I just have to search for someone who can sew the dress for me as sadly I don't know how to sew. Anyone out there want to lend me a hand :-).
I need things like short lace gloves, flowers for hats, a white dust ruffle that I can turn into bloomers, white vintage hankies. I can't believe with all my vintage hankies I have there is not one white one.
I feel like I'm on a scavenger hunt. It's fun. Who doesn't like the thrill of the hunt. The excitement when you find an item you can use. That special little piece that will add the final touches to the costume.
I'm going to do my best to put together a wonderful costume on my little tiny budget. It may be hard since I don't sew but it won't be impossible. Will it?
If you have any tips or ideas I would love for you to share them with me. I'm open to try anything to get this to work.
I'll be sure to post when I find some treasures. I want to take you all along on my journey back in time. I hope you will enjoy it.
