Today I am going to present you one of my latest projects : One that makes me feel like a 1940s detective. (Don’t ask me why, it’s only the strange first feeling I got about it haha! )
Tadaaaa!! My 40s « detective-secretary » outfit!!
This outfit is composed by a silk shirt and a long skirt.
Inside french seams finishing 🙂 . I really love the delicate feather pattern. It appears with movement and light.
(Sorry, poor quality pictures because of the low brightness level of my appartment lights)
The collar itselfoffers a special feature : I can make a knot with the « extended pieces of collar » (I don’t know what’s the english term for these things 🙂 ) , or I can just leave them, or put them inside the shirt. One shirt, three different ways to wear it! 🙂
And then comes the skirt, made with a heavy black fabric!
it comes from this pattern, and is a charm to sew! Very easy and fast sewing!!
Pattern Mc Call 7488
Finally, with this outfit you can have fun pretending to be an actress in a 1940s thriller movie!! haha!
Thank you all for reading, see you soon!
(Thanks babe for all the pictures 🙂 )
And as many crimes occure at midnight, I leave you with a great song of a great artist about a « lonely moon » to close this post 🙂
