Well here it is, late Monday night and I'm just getting to blogville. It was a busy weekend. I usually plan out what I wish to do a week or more in advance. I do that by looking over what I have out in the stores, looking at the season, and then considering what I need to round out the collections. As I was looking over my 1920's clothing line last week, I realized I did not have a single dress in black! So for my 13th (!) Roaring 20's gown, I made 'Bye Bye Blackbird' in black satin with a crescent moon at the hip. As often happens, a song struck me as fitting with the gown. That's why we have the Blackbird video at the beginning here. I don't think of it as a sad song so much as a reflective one. Something sultry and very fitting for this gown.
As always period undergarments come with. In this case it's a blush colored silk stepin. That's a one piece undergarment that you literally stepped into.
After this slinky little number, I went all hot and bothered with Chicago's opening dance number, 'All that jazz'. I love the movie, and of course the outfits. This one isn't the same as what's worn in the movie, but it's just as sexy and based on a real garment.
Can you imagine wearing the real thing and going out dancing? There's some serious sexy in that dress! And with 'Velma's Jazz' I can now present you 14 different 1920's dresses! It's not the end, there will be more, and in a few weeks I'll be introducing another line of dresses for a different time period.
Later this week, I'll have two new Victorian gowns out, as well as a 1950's gold satin ballgown. I'm trying a little different style with the Victorian gowns so I hope it's something the ladies will like. Until then, I'll leave you with a bit of fun and the video from the opening scenes of Chicago!
As always, these gowns will also be up on Xstreet in the next day or so.
