Jeanelle is showing off her new handmade fall ensemble that she will be wearing for her trip home for Thanksgiving. All 3 pieces are made using vintage 60's patterns. The ensemble consists of a fully lined swing coat, dirndl skirted sleeveless dress and slim dress with 3/4 sleeves.
Her friend, Barbara has shown up to help model, she likes this dress as she thinks it shows off her figure better. The slim dress looks like a potato sack here but in reality is quite nice, very sophisticated.
I love the clothes of the 50's and 60's, they were so stylish. I like ensembles like this that help extend your wardrobe. Mind you I am a fashion disaster. I wear jeans to work everyday, it's what I'm comfortable in in more ways than one. THIS is why I love my Barbies.....so I can dress them up in beautiful clothes, or comfy clothes or trendy clothes. I get my fashion fun through them.......and when you consider the price of good clothing, shoes and accessories these days.....it's a lot cheaper, well....maybe.
