20th Century, Sewing

Windy Lindy: What we wore

I’m sure that you are all wondering what I eventually decided on as my Windy Lindy dress.

Well, as per popular demand, I wore the green dress.

OK, in all honesty, I didn’t feel like wearing the serious undergarments that the white and black dress require, and I didn’t find the red dress until a few hours before the dance.

You have excellent taste though, dear readers, as I did feel that I looked rather fetching.

I paired the dress with a gold necklace, a silk peony rose and a butterfly in my hair, and gold dancing slippers.

Taking a break from the dancing

I got a lot of compliments on the neckline of the dress. It's very simple and flattering.

The gold necklace, and chandeliers and dancers in the background.

You can just see the butterfly above the peony rose in this shot.

The Dreamstress sweet...

...And saucy!

Madame Ornata looked rather fetching too.  We didn’t quite finish her dress (we had to sew her into it as the back fastenings weren’t done), but I do believe she was the belle of the ball.  She just looked so perfectly period, and the sapphire silk was so striking – you could spot it anywhere in the room.

Chaise lounges are such perfect props.

I'm so proud of this image. It looks like it was taken in a photography studio!

Don't you love the orchids in her hair, and the bracelets? She was sparkly diamantes all over.

Va va voom!

Doesn't she look just like a 1930s movie star? She has the perfect '30s figure!
