Vintage Fashion #8

There are two things I  LOVE About this dress is:

  1.  It’s long sleeves!
  2. There is a turquise flower… which means I can wear my turquise boots!

Happy Halloween… Vintage Style πŸŽƒ

This black and orange QUILTED dress is my costume today!  I’m going as a 60’s girl 😊

  
The bottom half of this dress is seriously quilted!! I’m going to be so warm when I take my kiddos out tonight!!

   
 
There is even a pocket –  perfect for for keeping a secret candy stash!! πŸ˜‰

  
(This dress was half off at an Estate Sale – so it was $1.50)

Simone is going as Laura from Little House on The Prairre. She got her outfit from a church sale for $2.

The older lady that checked us out said she had made the dress and hat for a barn dance she attended when she was young.

I couldn’t resist posting this handsome picture of my three boys as part of my Vintage Fashion Series!

They are actually dressed as magicians but they look like little vintage gangsters!

Friday Vintage Fashion – #6

Β Happy day before Halloween πŸŽƒ

I think it’s fitting that my vintage dress today is black with orange accent flowers!


My beautiful halloweenish dress…

Keeping warm with a jean jacket…

Truly getting into the season’s spirit with a pumpkin orange sweater…

I accessorized with a retro-flipped out hair style held back with a vintage orange scarf .

…and I can’t forget my pumpkin-pie earrings that I scored at a craft fair!

Happy Almost Halloween Y’ALL!

Altered vintage #1- orange button-up

This embellished burnt-orange button-up shirt literally called my name from across the thrift store rack.

The price tag read $3.09 – which meant I could buy it πŸ˜ƒ dispite it being too big!


This is the first time I’ve altered anything, so I was more worried about doing it successfully than about taking pictures to show how it was done- sorry!!Β Since I plan on doing this more often, I’ll get better at describing the process!

Basically…

I kept sewing inch seams under the arm down to the waist – about 4 times- till I got the shirt to a good size.
Then I created an inch seam atop the sleeve although down the sleeve. Β Finally, I took in the bottom arm seam 2 inches to create a better arm fit!


Of course- I’m more of a dress girl…

This shirt turned my summer dress into a fall outfit πŸŽƒ



I LOVE how the shirt turned out πŸ™‚ Well worth the $3 and time it took to sew.

Vintage Fashion #4- a shawl

Friday Fashion- Vintage Style

Today’s Vintage Friday Fashion features my beautiful daughter Simone and her vintage blue shawl.

Simone looked adorable during our camping trip as she wore the shawl every morning and evening to stay warm in the unusually cool weather…
