Becca thought it would be fun if we dressed up 1940s for our movie night, so we pulled out our forties inspired clothing, red lipstick, heels, and put victory rolls and pin curls in our hair. We also blasted Benny Goodman music whilst we got ready. Anything to help us get in the mood for the evening.
Originally I was going to wear a Ginger Rogers inspired outfit with my 1940s trousers and a blouse. Turns out they don't fit like they used to anymore, and they hang funny on me now. So I opted for my 1940s Swing Dress that I sewed back in 2010 [pattern review can be found here] instead as it still fits me like a dream.
