I gave my presentation on hats, 1850-1960, yesterday, and wore something I thought was appropriate for an afternoon luncheon.
Dress: made from vintage Butterick 8154
Hat: vintage mink “caterpillar” toque found in Alameda
Gloves: vintage from Sacramento Antiques market
Shoes: Payless, oh yeah.
I got the amazing opportunity to examine some antique shoes, particularly button boots, and will be sharing a couple photos of those with you soon.
Special thanks to the Churchill County Museum in Fallon, Nevada, for having me for a speaker, and for housing such a wonderful collection of vintage and antique clothing and accessories.
