I saw both of these the other night while searching for inspiration for the Masquerade HSF challenge, and it made me so happy! My sister couldn’t understand why I was so excited. 🙂
First we have the fashion print, which most of you have probably seen. I can’t count how many times I’ve seen it around!
And then we have this, which looks like someone else decided to make the dress pictured! (Found on Pinterest; have no idea who originally posted it. The links lead to a password protected blog that I can’t view.)
Isn’t that just so cute?!?! It’s a pretty faithful make of the drawn dress, too. Her hat and the bat on her chest are very different, but everything else is as close as can be to the drawing! She even remembered to have the black ribbon around her neck and the little bats on her shoes!
I love seeing fashion plates come to life from back then, especially when they are as faithfully recreated as this young woman did!
(I also was thinking of trying my hand at making this dress in the near future. Now I do know that it can and has been done! 😀 )
