When Rochelle announced the “Sew for Victory” sew along on her blog I was super excited and respond to the call with a sound YES, I WANT!
I read Rochelle’s suggestions about finding inspiration on Forties wearable, I downloaded the digital’s catalogue but I also would to recreate some Italian look as well of that period since I’m Italian and our WWII Era seen both my grand-mothers adolescent.
It took me a while but I found some interesting picture of real people at the Lombardia’s Cultural Heritage site, (Rich and well known I though, since there are also photos of the Savoia’s Family in that Archive), and at an antiques shop I found also a real woman’s fashion magazine in great vintage condition showing the 1948 spring-summer dress collection.
Browsing Ebay I found some Forties vintage pattern and I bought them and I’m impatiently wait them to arrive to decide what to make for the Sew Along.
In the meaning time me and all my family got the Flu…. oh! I’ve never got a flue so hard in ages, from school-er time I though. We are getting better now and today I play with some vintage look make up tests 🙂
see you soon, Giusy
