1920s gold and white dress: Version 2.0
I wore this dress, you may remember, to a holiday event at a local late-19thc estate, and have been working on the beading off-and-on since then. This past Saturday was a good friend's bachelorette party, which we celebrated by going to see the new Gatsby film in costume. Didn't get any good pictures then (hey, it wasn't about me!), but I made an effort to get some this week! The front of the skirt is now beaded, so it was quite presentable.
|Very cool "film noir" shot, fixed up by Robin of SewLoud's hubby! We keep him around to make us look good.|
|Same shot in a more usual format.|
|I've had this scarf for quite a few years, it just occurred to me that it might look good with this dress. Stroke of genius!|
|Isadora Duncan-type scarf, I thought. Don't worry, I didn't wear it in an open car...|
|And the unbeaded back (and my bad hair). Maybe by the next wearing...|
