That little black dress

As soon as I saw it, I knew it had to be mine.  I need a fancier dress for a variety of reasons, most notably the honeymoon I'm leaving for this week.  Huge thanks to The Fashionable Past for pinning this dress on pinterest.

1950s black chiffon party dress
More photos can be found here at Hemlock Vintage Clothing and I'll have photos of my dress up soon.  So far I've got the skirt pieces cut out and pinned on the dressform.

Pinterest finds that make me happy

I have found some items that I think can revolutionize my clothes for work:

Pretty stays c. 1850 from The Met

working class stays c.1850-70 from Corsets and Crinolines
