Since I have been interested in embroidery I was really attracted to Lady Edith’s dress. The styling seemed a little more modern for the time period, but the shape of the dress seems very 20’s.
I found some blue fabric, came up with a round pattern and then came up with the embroidery pattern similar to the dress. While I was embroidering, I kept wondering what to do with the center of the yellow circle. I would sew something and then take it out. I came across some of my seed catalogs and thought that a spring detail might work. I used similar colors to the design and came up with this. When I started to sew it together, the idea of turning it into a belt bag came as well. It can be a hand bag but also attached to a belt for hand use.
Get the Look!
VintagePatternGirl has another pattern that looks like it could be adapted to create this look. It would just need a few pockets and an adjustment on the neckline. I have one of her vintage patterns in my collection right now and working on creating a lovely hat! Can’t wait to share this!
In this scene, Lady Edith is writing to her family to say that she needs to leave (I won’t go into this in case it spoils anything). I thought that sharing some interesting letter writing accessories would be fitting. Here is a writing set from the 20’s or 30’s from DaffodilsVintage.
I thought that some nice writing paper would be fitting as well. PaperAndWren has a nice set.
Soon I will be creating my next look which is Lady Rose inspired. I purchased some specialty beading for this look! Thanks for stopping by my blog and enjoying this journey with me!
