I was watching a showing of "Immitation of Life" with Lana Turner and Sandra Dee yesterday; and while I KNEW it was a good flick, and one of my mom's favorites.... I just kept gasping at the outfits! I mean.. every time there was a scene change and Lana waltzed back into the room.. OMG.. another Awesome outfit. I just kept drooling. It was very undignified. lol.
So.. below is my attempt to TV screenshot, and transfer to my puter, then to blog of some of those, and the first one... Oh yeah.. I'm gonna be sewing THAT one!!
This one was sooooo sparkely! And look at the close up of those pretty little loops on the bodice.
Although she never menitoned it, I'm pretty certain that 'mommy's" similar outfit must have been inspired by this one!
Another one I have to have for ME!! I think I already have a similar pattern lurking around somewhere:
