So it took me a moment to notice when a coworker walked by wearing this....
That apparently, the late 1930s and 1940s are IN. Holy crap. If I finish this dress in the next few weeks, I could wear it and be fashionable both among reenactors and... among HIPSTERS.
And then there's the Sheer thing. At some point I need to braindump about all the amazing sheer dresses, but until then I have a Picasa album squirreled away with a bunch of it. But I give you:
Exhibit A: Vintage.
Exhibit B: Modern.
Whatever is old is new again, baby!
