I don't wear pants so I excluded them  Tongue
This is a mix and match set of two skirts (40s repro pattern), one blouse, one dress, and one jacket. (last 3 are a moern Simplity pattern with a few adaptions to add retro-ness)

It of course is very retro in a loud way cuz...ahem...that's me.  Shocked

onto the fun:

this is skirt one with a basic white top ( i think i might just make red blouse later)


here is blouse one with skirt two:


here is dress 1 with jacket 1 (remember the dress...this is my solution to it looking like a hospital gown)


this is skirt one with jacket 1 and a basic white undershirt

and also you can wear the jacket with the red skirt if you wish.

I love this whole idea and I am planning another wardobe in monster green and black. But after the hubster gets this shirt that i am making...can u believe he picked all the fabric out? LOL it's going to be cute. I will see if i can get him to take photos for me afterwards!  Wink

in the mean time what do you think of the wardrobe? I think it also could use a basic red tshirt.

I think it's adorable with the jacket! But I also like the look with the white shirt (look 1). It makes it look casual and sweet. I love your work!

Holy cow!  I love it, and I love the jacket with the "old" dress, too - it really jazzes it up!

ohmigosh that's just darling!  I'm a plus-size gal, and it's been such a pain to find cute retro clothes (I'm going through a june cleaver phase right now) so your outfits are an inspiration!  Another way to keep the dress from looking like a hospital gown would be to accessorize with a cute red patent leather belt!

There is nothing on earth more entertaining than watching a pack of half-grown puppies playing in snow for the very first time.

My favourite is the one with the red skirt and the bias trim on the top. That looks fabulous.
Please tell me you have red shoes to go with this.......
