Inspiration early 1940's

I'm sure you all know the feeling when you see something pretty and it keeps hunting you day after day, month after month, until you finally have to get it? Sure you do :)
I have been eyeing this picture of a 40's vintage dress on Pinterest forever and since there's no way I could ever buy the actual dress, I thought I would just have to make a version of it for myself.

 The other day I was rummaging through my local fabric store and came across this gorgeously rusty orange rayon jersey. I instantly thought of this dress and bought the fabric.

I drafter the pattern for the dress myself using the basic jersey block. I simplified the style a bit by only making one "scarf" around the neck and by shortening the sleeves. I had a pair of old shoulder pads I had taken from one of my vintage dresses, so I used those to give a little oompf to the shoulder line.

Frankie100 lindy hop weekend

Hi all! Sorry about not being very active with my blog recently. I haven't been paying so much attention to my outfits lately, or I've been wearing the same outfits over and over again, so I haven't really found much to talk about.

I've been taking lessons on lindy hop since last autumn as some of you may already know and last weekend I had the opportunity to participate in a lindy hop weekend celebrating the great Frankie Manning. There were parties and lessons where we learned some of Frankies favourite moves and choreographies. I had so much fun! I danced my heart out (and legs off). 

I didn't bring my own camera so I'm showing you pictures and videos that others took. If you see a photo of you or a photo you took and don't want it up in my blog, please let me know!
 
I also don't have any specific photos of my outfits, but you've seen them here in my blog earlier.


Shakin' it!

And here's a little clip of the lindy chorus. I'm the one with the bright red top :)

New dress collection: Summer 2014!

Did I remember to mention my new summer collection is out? 
Well, it is! We had a great deal of fun with the lovely Ladies Jirina and Fiona from PinUpHelsinki and the burlesque artist Vera de Vil shooting my new collection in Helsinki last month.
I'm very happy with the result and honestly I have no idea why I didn't share this here earlier. It's such a pleasure to work with professionals who know what they want to do and how to do it.

Check them out!
