Flower Play

It's funny....when I acquired the amazing floral 30s fabric that I am making my dress out of, I kept feeling like it was calling out to be made into a playsuit.  Luckily, I have enough yardage to make one to match my frock because, wouldn't you know, I end up spying more than one 30s floral cotton playsuit in a matter of days and of course they are the wrong size.  I like when my intuition that 30s women might have worn something like that gets affirmed by concrete vintage proof!

It will be so cool to have a play suit matching your dress! And your fabric is a lot nicer than these examples too. Can't wait to see it finished.
