My "Peas"





I love this outfit - it was made when I was alot thinner though, lucky for me the weight seems to have gone to my boobs !!!!! Believe me, this dress never had such cleavage when I first made it about 2-3 years ago....... and arnt the green beads darling???? I have a friend who calls them my 'peas' (the beads I mean !!)....cute !!! As for the cleavage, well, with summer time here now, it is easier to be active and energetic - I am hoping I can return to my former 'slender-er' figure again before the season is out....nice to know I can wear this pretty little number whether curvaceous or not though !!! And that is the great thing about dressing mid century - the clothing styles were designed for women, so one could be as curvaceous as ones body dictated and still look beautiful, not to mention feminine and attractive. Infact often times one looked better with a bit of flesh....... sorry Kate Moss etc, but you can keep your catwalk petite-ness.....curves are yet another very good reason to dress vintage I say !

  2. Oh gosh that's a cute dress AND outfit :-) The green looks excellent on you. Did you make the dress from a pattern or just made it up? If it's from a pattern could I trouble you to tell me which one! :-)
