Today I'm taking my inspiration from 1950's vintage looks with a modern twist.
Skirt - full circle skirt using Loulouthi cotton voile, made by me with bloomers underneath to give a little fullness until I get the petticoat made
Blouse - Max from over 10 years ago, stretch cotton
Vest - knit by me in a chunky yarn, if it'd been knit in the 50's the style would have been fine, but the yarn would have been fingering/sock weight yarn
Shoes - purchased from a discount shoe place now gone, lace up leather shoes. These are the closest I have to something that would have been worn in that timeframe.

It's school holidays now and we've made hokey pokey this morning, it's horribly wet outside so there won't be any outside time and the boys will probably get on the computer this afternoon. I'm planning on cutting out for my petticoat today. It won't be the 50's froufrou crinoline, a modified version so I can wear it under most of my fuller skirts without looking like I time travelled. Much as I love the full New Look skirts, they don't really suit my lifestyle these days. That and if I make the full petticoat I then have to store it somewhere!
