This is a salesman's sample card of shoe buckles from the 1920's. Very Art Deco style, some with enamel colors.
Hope you enjoy seeing them!
This is a 1930's gown and jacket made from a vintage pattern. It was worn for a vintage party where guests dressed
up. The hat is made from a blue/green pheasant back (that my hunter husband shot). Gloves made to match and shoes
covered in ultra suede to match. The jacket is lined and features red fox trim.
Daaaarling, just goofing off on the red carpet as guests arrived. Make-up was professionally done (overdone) to
look the era like Joan Crawford. Hair true to era with a "rat" of foam and hair rolled around it. I had so
many bobby pins I would have set off the alarms at the airport. Note curved empire waist and buckles at shoulders to hold
up bodice. The back piece came around the neck to hold up bodice. It was fun to wear.
This is gown had an unusual pattern piece missing that was a challenge to draw. The back has added boning
for stability. There is a short train. Alternating satin and matching crepe. Note the belt at back with matching
clasp to shoulder clasps.
Roaring 20's dress from 1925. Note bell-like sleeve mid-way up arm. There are 30 blue-gold gilded glass buttons
diagonally across front and on bells. In 1925 this was a size 20 pattern. Pleated darker blue drop waist skirt.
100% wool, lined, colors true to era. Also looks nice without the belt!
This 1925 Kissel Car nicknamed the "Goldbug" is the same type of car that Amelia Earhart drove her mother in from San
Francisco to Boston. The dress and car are from the same year. Kids followed Amelia down the street when she passed
through small towns. The steering wheel was wood and you had to make a lever go back and forth by hand to make the windshield
