Went to an awards ceremony and made myself a full length silk satin version of my 1940s inspired Ella dress... 😍😍 felt like Cinderella!

I finally got around to give this little 1940s blouse some TLC so it is ready to be worn again. I love its collar, sleeves and ruffles. Isn’t it funny how very 1970s looking it is? Im wearing it together with set of 1940s blue brooches, classic 1940s swing skirt, 1930s handbag from @hypatiascloset, 1950s turistscarf wrapped as a half turban and hairflowers from @missbellasblooms. 💙

The most beautiful 1940svred silk velvet dress. The colour is so rich and so hard to photograh as it changes in different lightning. It is an early christmas present from my boyfriend which landed in the mail last week together with another package of blue jewelry beauties. ♥️💙The two piece brooch set are from the 1940s, the insect brooch also from the 1940s/early 1950s and the art deco flapper necklace is from the 1920s.

Thank you to The Arts Society for inviting me to speak at the lovely event that was Jazz Before Jazz at 2 Temple Place, amazing art nouveau setting where I spoke about early jazz age influencers pre-WWI such as Callot Soeurs. This c1917 afternoon dress illustrates just how ahead of the fashion game they were @chicagomuseum #callotsoeurs #frenchdesign #frenchfashion #frenchcouture #jazzage #dresshistory #fashionhistory #1910s #1910sfashion #reddress #ladyinred #redsilk #wartimefashion #theartssociety #lecturerlife

It is so long since I have sewn something for myself. Sheer frustration at not finding many clothes to fit my shape (according to the measurements on this pattern I range from a size 10 to 20!) has pushed me to start again. Wish me luck with these 'Rosie the Riveter' overalls from @folkwearsewing.patterns #homesewer #crafts #diy #fabric #rosietheriveter #wartimefashion #sewcialist

In 1939, over 800,000 school children were evacuated out of London within the space of 3 days... I find it hard to fathom how those mothers must have felt, having their children taken away from them... today we remembered those who have been impacted by war in any way... soldiers, evacuees... and everyday people like you and me. The children did a wonderful job commemorating in song, and this little video will be one I treasure for always x #remembranceday #wewillrememberthem #evacuees #wartimefashion #wartimesongs @benaboutlondon @davidthemagnus

1917 Août ... "Affectueux souvenir" La guerre n'est pas terminée la famille est réunie, le temps d'une permission ? Le père est en #uniforme l'air absent derrière son énorme #moustache. La mère au regard vague est en #robed'été, simple souple mais assez élaborée avec son jeu de panneaux #rebrodée. Sa #coiffure en casque compact est caractéristique de l'époque. Le #noeud qui ferme ses #souliers de #daim clair donne à l'ensemble une note étrangement frivole. Leur #garçon porte l'inévitable #costume #marin, il est le seul à fixer l'objectif avec un étrange sourire.

Madame est simplement vêtue, comme des milliers de femmes à l'époque d'une #blouse et d'une #jupe raccourcie, les lourdes #bottines lacées d'inspiration #militaire sont clairement visibles. Monsieur est en #uniforme il arbore les inévitables #moustaches cirées. #Képi #vareuse #culottesdecheval (?) composent sa tenue, il porte sans doute des #guêtres sur ses #brodequins #photographieancienne
A typical #WWI look for many women Madame wears a #1917fashion : #shirtwaist and #skirt plus the heavy laced up #boots with chunky #heels inspired by #aviators. Monsieur is in uniform #jacket with #ridingbreeches and probably wearing #gaiters over his boots. #wartimefashion #handlebarmoustaches #1910sfashion #fashionandww1

1917, Pâques, en Allemagne trois amies, Liesel Dukert, Marta Hauer et Telly (?) Aug posent dans des tenues presque identiques et très en vogue à l'époque : un #chemisier plus ou moins ouvragé et une #jupe évasée. Les modèles sont encore proches de ceux présentés dans le magazine #EleganteWelt en 1915
