I must admit, I’m not all that happy with today’s project and I can’t figure out what it is. I know I wouldn’t have chosen black and white gingham if I wasn’t making it to go with the planned wardrobe for the patternreview.com contest. I also don’t think I would have lengthened the jacket so it was a good length to wear with the blouses. I just don’t think this outfit looks very 1930’s to me. Is it the lack of big, puffy sleeves we see in patterns a few years later than this one? Is it the lack of set hair? (with this humidity, my set doesn’t even make it to dinner time). Is this outfit worth another try?
