I love vintage--I love the feel of days past and classier fashion (not that I don't enjoy the fashion of today--I would DIE without my jeans!--it's just that I love how sweet and classy clothes used to be!)--the classy looks of the 40's and 50's will forever be my favorites. And of course I just LOVE black and white together--so taking a trip back through time, here is my absolute favorite thing I have ever created--these aren't the best pictures ever (it was just me, a cloudy day, and a tripod), but it will have to do until I can get some better ones:
A black and white vintage dress, complete with pearls, fabric flower ring, piping, double godets, embroidery, and bead-work--yes, I'm quite proud of it. :)
Of course, I couldn't just leave it at the dress--gotta have a matching coat and scarf, just in case it gets cold! Cream wool, black and white checked piping, a whole lot of top-stitching, triangle button-holes, the works.
Oh yes, and the polka-dot lining--just because it's inside, doesn't mean it can't be beautiful!
