Every once in a while you come across something that you MUST have. The feeling came upon me when I saw this super cute 1930s Tour Eiffel eyelet dress in an email from a dear friend.
It was love at first sight, my friends. I'd never seen anything quite like it, but I knew that I loved it. The eyelet lace top, the super cute giant bow (very 1930s), the neckline....
But at $425 it was about $400 out of my price range. Still, after three days of thinking about this dress non stop I decided that I may have to make recreating something like it my January project.
As I thought about it more pictured this new creation as more of a play suit. I was thinking about changing that skirt into pants and adding a zipper up the back. Everyone seems to be posting about 1930's Pajama Trousers lately and that probably accounts for why I've got them on the brain.

"Sketched" and photographed during 5 minute lunch break. I need a better cellphone camera, but anyways.
I quickly hopped on my favorite vintage pattern source (read: etsy) and managed to locate a few patterns that would make a good base for my play suit/jumper/frankensteined mental creation. I especially loved this little lady from 1930 who seemed to be just want I was looking for.
But what to you think, Dear Readers. Is this a great idea or a major fashion don't waiting to happen? You've never led me astray with your advice before so I'll trust your judgement.
