Here is the wearing of the vintage pattern velvet dress FINALLY!
I struggled making a belt which I opted out on wearing. The belt is actually optional with the dress.
We went to our church's Valentine Banquet that is held each year on Sat. Headband was borrowed from my student's Mom.
The necklace was a Valentine gift from Bob.
It's from the museum and is mastodon ivory.
I bought some blue eyeshadow for this which I have not wore since the 50's and also had blue toenails and pink shoes. I really need a pair of silver shoes for this. Ladies at my church are onto me arriving in my outfits I have made and come over to see what I made and discuss them. To wear clothes like this is a bit different in Alaska but I hope to start a Retro sewing trend here!!
