Title: 40's style dress in pale blue and gray
Post by: TeenyBunny on September 08, 2010 11:57:32 AM
I made another version of the 40's style set. I think together they look like fire and ice.  ;) This version suites blondie's fair coloring. I did her hat a little different. I made one in the solid gray first, but the fabric was too flimsy to really support the design. The blue is a heavier weight fabric and worked better for the hat. I added a gray band too.



Gettin' their groove on!

Ah! I guessed something like this was coming!
I love Blondie's version! the hat is cute as well. I think I better like it that way.

I just adore their hats!  Did you design the pattern?  Is there any chance you would be willing to share?  I'd totally pay to get such a nice hat pattern.  I have a tiny head that's very round, and only really looks good in cloche styles.
