🌬It is always so windy at my mums 🌬
It has been a really cold summer but this weekend it was "warm" enough for me to finally wear the pair of shorts that I made over a month ago. Both the shirts and the shirt are made from the same 1940s pattern so now I have a 40s sports set 💕

Yesterdays outfit -yet another dress from @majakudahl with pretty details.
This one took a bit of work. It was a bit to big and short waisted. I took it apart, lengthened the bodice and made the waist smaller. Normally I wouldn't do that with a vintage dress but this dress had already been altered by the original owner. All seams had been let out and the skirt had been cut shorter -probably from a 1930s shin length to a 1940s knee length. Now it fits and I love it ❤️ •

Now that I'm working on a new dress I thought it was a good idea to actually wear those I've already made. So today I'm wearing a dress that I made from a 1940s pattern.
And I managed to get my hair into waves! It's become so long and heavy that it's getting really difficult to curl and style. •

I'm working on a new dress.
I've had this fabric for ages but never really had a clear idea of what to sew from it. A week ago I found a picture from a 1942 Sears catalogue with a dress in almost the same type of fabric so I decided to make a 1940s dress. I'm altering one of my 1940s dress patterns and hopefully the alterations will work. ✂️

I bought my galoshes, mostly because they are a fun piece to have. I didn't think that I would get much use out of them. But with this "summer" weather I'm starting to think that they might get worn out 🌧☔️ •

🌷New dress🌷
A late 1930s or early 1940s rayon dress with an interesting collar-turning-into-a-bow-detail. And it's sooooo comfortable! •

Still trying to capture black without overexposing everything else...
Today I spend the day at @atouchofvintage_cph taking pictures of all the dresses for Etsy. I chose to wear something comfortable and this 1940s rayon dress is one of my most comfortable dresses. It has adjustable waist ties and completely free gange of movement in the shoulder area -win!

🌚Why is it so hard to photograph black ?!🌚
I realised that I've never posted this dress, even though it's one of the dresses I've been wearing the most this summer. ✨50s/60s eyelet lace dress with rhinestone buttons✨ •

Stupid facial expression but it's the photo that best shows of the dress, so...
I had completely forgotten that I made a skirt of this fabric when I bought it 2 years ago. The dress pattern I originally planned to use had a very ill fitting bodice, so I never made it past the skirt part. I found the skirt among some scrap fabric yesterday and with some seam finishing I now have a 1940s skirt set. ✨Both skirt and shirt are made from original 1940s sewing patterns✨ •

☘️Edwardian dress on an edwardian staircase ☘️
I was looking through old photos and found a photo of my yellow edwardian dress that I haven't posted before.
I need more events where I can wear it and I also want to make more edwardian dresses!

Fancy dress and frizzy hair ✨
Wearing one of the dresses from @majakudahl 's huge stash. It's not a colour that I would usually wear but I quite like it. The dress is also a bit fancier than normal but that's ok because I might be going out for drinks later 🥂🍾

Very casual on a very tired day 🔹
I'm back home in Copenhagen after a very chaotic and exhausting trip home from London. Our plane got cancelled and we had to spend the night sleeping on the airport floor. We eventually got home -16 hours later than planned. ✨Wearing a homemade shirt and skirt, both made from original 40s patterns✨
