as my volunteer contribution for the Boulder 1940s WWII Ball, i’m costuming three cigarette girls.
there were certain technical hurdles. i’m basically reproducing – reiterating? – the costumes from last year… based on three pictures – the girls in burgundy, there in the center.
except i have no model measurements, so these must be able to fit basically anyone of any shape or size. it’s an interesting technical challenge to adapt my patterns that way, since the garments are actually structured garments that are meant to look fitted.
at least the hats are easy peasy. ^_^ and ADORABIBBLE.
