Blue, Blue Baby

Although today was a Tuesday, it sort of felt like a blue Monday.  The sky is overcast and the humidity levels are stifling.  Then the postman delivered a nice surprise: my 1930s bespoke/repro. dress created by nudeedudee.  I had bought this dress way back in the early spring with my birthday fundage.  As always, proprietress Kim was so accommodating when I contacted her, birthday $$ burning, to see if she could take an image of a dress from a 1930s catalogue (below) and turn it into reality.  Of course, I took forever deciding on the fabric and the right buttons (I'm such a fussy Baroness).  Then, we had to actually FIND said fabric and buttons.  Finally, voila!  I can't thank Ms. Kim enough for her patience and her creative genius.  The dress is BETTER than the picture!!  Would it be wrong to sleep in it tonight? That's how much I love it!

I agree, Kim is a creative GODDESS. You should see the amazing dresses she has created for me lateley a la Marilyn Monroe. Love your new jumper, just stunning on you. I wonder if she kept the pattern....

ha ha...I actually frankensteined together some concepts from the 30s, 40s, and 50s to make that one! Bodice from one pattern, skirt from another, and cuffs out of the blue! The sleeve cuffs join with false button loops at the top of the shoulder with teensy square MOP buttons, they're so cool (tho a little biased here). :.) Glad everyone likes it, I'm touched!
