Hollywood 1351

I got Hollywood 1351 from the lovely and talented Lauren, over at http://www.wearinghistorypatterns.com/  I think it’s my new favorite pattern.  I had made a muslin of this top a while back, when I first got it, but it sat around for a while.  I had been convinced that mid-30’s styles were to slim fitted to work for me until I was inspired by Irene Dunne’s character in “Theodora Goes Wild”.  All her skirts were so full and twirly that I just had to give it a go.  I used McCall 9005 for the skirt, since I already know it fits.  I did my usual FBA and also added more flare to the peplum.  I’m very happy with this outfit and can see making several more.

    What a lovely outfit! I’ve been concerned that those 30’s square necklines will make my neck look too wide, but it looks great on you. I’ll have to try it.

    I love your outfits and style but I have to ask: is it hard to size the patterns up to your measurements, and do u have any secret ninja tricks for me?
