Hey TangoBaby!

Just because I know you would appreciate it.... Here is my first project for my costume production class this semester....























I am recreating this look from 1950's Dior......
I'll post my progress. I am so excited!

I am also taking a millinery class, so maybe I will make the little hat too.... ooooh!

OH! (regains consciousness) What size might this ensemble be made in?...omg, omg...I'm having little palpitations!!!

Good for you! I know your creation with turn out so beautifully!

hee hee!
My model is 5'3, and a curvy size 6-ish - she has the perfect 50's body.
I knew you would appreciate my taste choice! ;-)

Oh Goodness! That is gorgeous.

If I lived in a slightly more metropolitan area, where people didn't wonder what moon you came from if you dress nicely, I would dress in this style. It's perfect for those little waists and big curvy hips, and oh so feminine.

But seriously, your recreating this? I can't even begin to imagine having the technical know hows to create something like that.

I am going to lose 20 pounds or get a corset, or both. And then will you make me one? I already have the shoes.

Debbi said...

Hi mama!
Yes, I am recreating these garments. Part of my class this semester is figuring out how to drape a garment from a photo. Challenging stuff, but so fun!
I'll post progress photos, I'm curious how I am going to do it myself! ;-)

Oh my God, that is so beautiful!!! Cannot wait to see more!!!!!

Debbi said...

ha! tangobaby, let me figure this one out, and then we can talk about my making one for your natural gorgeous self! My model already has dibs on the project, in fact, I think she drooled a little when I showed her the image.... ;-)

I am seriously going on a diet then!

Johanna said...

Um, will you recreate one for a 5'7" gal? I was born in the wrong era and today's clothes just don't do me justice :-)

Debbi said...

Looks like I chose the right era and silhouette! ha! Being 5'7 myself and a true hourglass (which is why I HATE high waisted pants, they make me look preggers), I totally get where you are coming from Johanna!
So let's see
One for TangoBaby (who has no need of a diet FYI)...
One for Johanna....
Maybe one for Mama when she is not in her home town....
any others?
;-)

This is gorgeous! I went looking for a taffeta to make a skirt, having a desire to emphasize the waistline.
Can't wait to see it! Ooooo.

Me! *waving hand frantically and making "oh! oh!" sounds*

;)

It really is a fantastic outfit and when I look at photos like those - it makes me think I was so born in the wrong era.

Frances R said...

Aaaah! I want that blouse. It will look good on me. I am not so sure about the skirt (for me), but it is beautiful.

Elizabeth said...

Want. This. Now.

Hey I love the dress and would love to see you version but I don't know where to look, also do you have any specific details about the dress itself?
