:: vintage monday [ week five ] ::
[ click for larger view. ]

This week I decided to showcase something a little different than the usual fare: young girl’s frocks from the 1920’s. I know as a little girl I loved to dress up in pretty dresses that had peter pan collars (and usually a matching pinafore...), and I have always adored the little details and innocence that older girl’s styles evoke. These dresses are so much fun, and have gobs of ideas that you could use in a present day, misses design! Different collar shapes, interesting pockets, tiered skirts, embroidery, sashes... My favorite snippets: the center top frock’s sleeves (those mini-ruffles would look lovely on many applications!), and the bottom right dress’s use of trim (simple, but not boring).

I’ll be back a little later with more creative-goodness. Hopefully by then my fingers will have thawed! lol.

Cheers & Creativity,
Casey [ email me ]
