Vassar students, 1950s
Mary Pickford hair appreciation.
[What’s the best way to dismiss someone?] "Be quiet and do better than them."
Dress made from six yards of blue stretch taffeta and several yards of off white chiffon (which is lined with bridal satin). The bodice is lined with cotton, and decorated with hundreds of small glass pearls. It’s partially boned and laces up the back. The pattern and construction were all done by me!
The hardest part was getting the shape of the hood, it has buckram and hopping wire in it to hold the shape.
Not sure how long it took to make. Has $45 of materials in it.
Now that this is done I get to start on new projects next week, which is super exciting! I’m not sure what i’ll be making - I’m going fabric shopping next week, so I may let my purchases inspire me.
Sorry for lack of smiles ;; I wanted to get these done fast so I went with somber expressions since those are nearly derp proof.
