Costume College is sneaking up on me really fast. The theme this year is the Golden Age of Hollywood, so I’ve been madly trying to come up with some classic film worthy gowns! Last year I made one gown inspired by classic Hollywood (you might remember if from this post)- and then the theme for this year was announced- so I grabbed at the chance to further indulge my inner classic movie fan. So far I’ve got two new gowns I’m taking with me this year- one 1930s and one 1940s. I’m not sharing pictures yet, but here’s what I’ve been inspired by:

I’m also teaching two classes this year. If you’re attending make sure you come say “hi”, and take my classes if you can. They are “De-coding Vintage Patterns” and “Building a Basic 1930s/1940s Wardrobe.”
