So, my dear male readers, what were you planning against your peacock ladies for our event?
Playing it safe as a Victorian Dandy, all frock-coat and bow-tie?
Or Maybe as an Edwardian dilettante with your blazer and boater?
A 1920s chap with sleek tailoring and two-tone shoes catches your eye,
or a suave 30s gentleman in his slacks and casual wear?
The 40s film-noir fellow may be more your thing-slick suiting and a fetching fedora…
or the home-boy bobby-soxing of the 50s?
Or maybe the military man is more your kind of thing?
Ever wondered how to make a super burlesque fan? They do cost stunning amounts of money, but this tutorial shows you how to quite simply make your own
So there, you can simply shake and shimmy your feathery flair with ease, dear readers
For those lovely ladies who would adore the nipped-in waist that a corset provides, but lack the resources to procure one from the shops… here is a free tutorial from Crafster on how to make your own. This shows you how to make a pattern for your own shape and also includes a video tutorial
In your quest for vintage loveliness, my dear readers, you might wish to dip back further still into history. This is a pattern for a corselet or stays. This won’t radically hold you in, but is a pretty addition to top off an outfit.
This is not for the boned version….just a simple coreselet that will cover the join between a blouse and skirt.
Thanks to the lovely ladies at http://vavoomvintage.blogspot.com/ ,here are some more vintage crafting activities for you, my lovely readers. This way, you can craft your way to a fetching vintage boudoir along with your fantastic outfits!
A brilliant period dressing-table trim
A spiffing weekend going-away kit (for your trip to Morecambe Variety Festival, of course)
This was something I had shared previously with Abigail of The Shell Shop http://www.theshellshop.co.uk/
on the Facebook Page for the Morecambe Variety Festival, https://www.facebook.com/events/176417035799252/
but I thought that you might like to try this too, dear readers….
And how much do you love your Morecambe Variety Festival vintage blog, my lovely readers? I have another super little treasure for you, my nimble-fingered little seamstresses!
What else do you need to complete the super-swirly 1950s dress pattern I gave you the link for in my last post?
A supremely sticky-out set of 50s petticoats, that’s what!
A free pattern for these petticoats would be even better, I hear you cry!
Well, as I want the attendees of Morecambe Variety Festival to be the sassiest, sexiest, and best-dressed vintage babes this side of Barrow-in Furness… well, here you go!
Get stitching, sweeties!
