If you love the romantic floral prints of the 40s and 50s then check out Flapper Girl Fabrics . They have some of the nicest vintage reproduction cotton prints I’ve seen for home sewing, decorating and upholstering. They also offer some really cute patterns like the bag and cute halter top shown below.
Even if you’re relatively new at the DIY thing, these look like they’d be pretty easy to whip up. If you don’t have the time or the skill, you can always take a pattern and some of these great fabrics to your nearest seamstress and have them custom made!
How cool is this? The entertainment director of Chicago’s Navy Pier chose my vintage reproduction Hawaiian dresses for their Polynesian themed summer performances. The picture above shows a few of the entertainers wearing both the "Polynesian Dream" and "Tropical Temptress" styles.
Needless to say, I am more excited than Imelda Marcos at a Ferragamo sample sale!
The Navy Pier is the midwest’s largest tourist destination, attracting over 8 million visitors a year. Located on Lake Michigan, it offers a wide range of entertainment for the whole family, including cruises, shopping, fine dining, concerts and special events.
