Everybody’s learning how to do the Big Apple….
Leafing through a recent catalog find I stumbled across “Big Apple” print dresses. How thrilling! I hadn’t realized that apple print went along with the swing dance craze that influenced dress in the late thirties. These pictures date to 1937 from a midsummer sale catalog. Aren’t they the best? Now I’ll be on the hunt for the perfect apple print to fashion myself a dress from. Or perhaps it’s time to try out Spoonflower?
If a dress wasn’t enough this page also has apple print shoes!
And if a dress and shoes aren’t enough you could even order a Big Apple slip!
Here’s a video of Whitey’s Lindy Hoppers performing the dance in 1939.
Hope everyone had a lovely Easter weekend!
