As promised, here are pics from today's lovely event at the Ehrman Mansion, Sugarpine State Park, Lake Tahoe.

My dress all finished, paired with so-so hair.  Always a pleasure when one's hair doesn't dry overnight, and drastic measured must be taken the next day, lol.
I finished the 1933 Vintage Vogue 2671 just in time, and even though I feel I didn't do a very pristine job, I like how it turned out a lot, and it was comfortable to wear.  I paired it with a pink silk slip I made a few years back.
Finished Vogue 2671, with my alteration to the neckline.  I also shortened the skirt considerably.


  1. Lovely dress, your hair doesn't look amiss at all. My hair has issues with wet sets and drying overnight so I feel your pain.

    1. it's always a moment of "oh noooo!" when you wake up in the morning and unroll that first curler to discover it's not dry. /sigh. Ah well, it turned out okay in the end

  2. So very CUTE! I love it! :)

  3. I think you look darling. And I wouldn't feel bad about your hair. Women back in the day had difficult hair days too!

    PS I LOVE those shoes!

    1. Very true! My grandmother had a great story about her friend always being late for things because her hair hadn't dried, lol

  4. Your dress looks absolutely beautiful! I love how it looks with the pink tone from the slip.
