AHOY!! part one

Well, so much for being too busy to blog.  I've pushed a lot of my big projects to the weekend, so decided to do more posting.  Today was SO warm and sunny, I had to get outside in the backyard and pretend I was on holiday somewhere warm.  While I was out there, I thought I'd snap some more pics of THE 1930s floursack sailor dress requested by some of you.

What a gorgeous sailor dress, and those sunglasses are fabulous too! You really do look like you are on holiday somewhere warm, like you're just about to go to the beach and hunt for creatures in rockpools :)

Miss M: I wish I had a picture to SHOW you the back. This is the area I feel the hairdresser went too short. Oh well...THANKS, though, doll!

This is definitely one of my most cherished vintage finds ever. THANKS everyone!!

OK. I have to calm down.

I just noticed the back of that sailor dress pattern.

PLUNGING and a SAILOR flap.

WOW!!

It is a great dress, I love it. I have always harbored a secret love for sailor dresses and I feel validated when I see a great dress like this. Congrats on a great find.

I totally was outbid on that pattern, I hope Lauren from Wearing History got it so she can reproduce it for our greedy little hands!!! It is soooo smashing.

BaronessVonVintage said...

gaaa! Bombshell, you're right. That's fantastic. I had thrown that pattern image up here just for fun (nudeedudee, I might have gotten that image from your flickr feed???). That would be a FANTABULOUS dress to add to the nudeedudee line of bespoke garments! To be honest, I wish my sailor had that back. It gets a little warm wearing a covered back in these temperatures!!!
