Today, a fellow member of the Great Basin Costume Society, Stacy Ferguson-Standstedt, GAVE me a handmade, home-made vintage dress her grandmother made waaaay back in I’m guessing the 1950s, by the looks of the pattern. It’s a hot pink brocade with a subtle pattern of leaves…and I mean PINK! I took it up in the front and back darts quit a lot, carrying the darts all the way up to the neckline all around, and curving the front darts to take up the fullness in the bust.
And then of course I had to wear it…and monster feather eyelashes, and a bouffant hair-do. Can you blame me?
