So I've been invited to a 40s themed costume party, so it's in October, but, call me overzelous. I want to get started on ideas now...
I couldn't decide between going for a army-uniform type thing or full-out Ava Gardner-style satin gown.
I was actually thinking of combining the dress with an army style jacket and/or hat, seeing as I have so much time, but I'm having trouble finding good pictures on the net for inpiration on styles, particularly what type of upper body such a dress should have. I also need pictuer of forties women's army jackets. I've found a few but none show the whole full length front.
Does anyone know any good sites for either pictures or patterns for either of these types of outfits?
All ideas welcome!
Thank for you help
