Autumn Leaves!

A couple of months ago I message Curvy Couture by Judy Dee through facebook, asking Judy if she could please make me a 1940's style pinafore dress!  I've seen Judy's beautiful creations on the one and only Miss Victory Violet! I just had to asked if I could have my own unique dress to wear and feature on my blog!
I sent a photo I found and the fabric I wanted to Judy. I decided on this Autumn leaves print because 1. I don't usually wear browns and wanted to try this colour and 2.  I wanted a print that was different from my favourite floral/fruit/tropical/novelty prints I usually wear.
I then sent through my measurements to Judy and sorted out how I could pay her etc.
Judy lives in New Zealand and she creates beautiful vintage reproduction garments and caters for sizes 12-22.
I'm very happy on the end result, this gorgeous dress is exactly what I was wanting going by the original photo I sent to Judy.
I love the back wrap style, that joins up with medium size buttons. I absolutely love the low cut-out back, the cute heart-shape front pocket and of course the ruffles around the bottom and on the sleeves.
The fabric is made of a sturdy cotton, so is very comfortable to wear.
Also I'm loving the length and how well this dress is constructed.  Judy has done a wonderful job with her dressmaking skills.
I highly recommend, ordering yourself a custom made outfit from Curvy Couture by Judy Dee.
Accessories Include:
Cream sandals from Bait Footwear 
Vintage basket/purse from Word from the Bird
Brooch from Erstwilder
Bangles thrifted
Hoop earrings from Revere Folie
I'm wearing another gorgeous hair-flower by Shazam Pinup Hair-Flowers
This one is the Terracotta Bi Colour double Anemone Clip.  This hair-flower is attached to a strong metal alligator clip.  I'm thrilled the terracotta browns matches my dress perfectly! 
This hair-flower is now sold out on the website.
 In other news over the weekend for my short Easter break, I visited family in Bundaberg, Queensland. Whilst up there I bought myself a new vintage style picnic basket set, a flamingo umbrella, a flamingo ornament and a new Erstwilder brooch, the country lemonade one.
On the Sunday I attended a local vintage car and hot-rod show and I judged a pinup pageant, that I really enjoyed doing. There was another lady also judging with me, I felt we did a pretty good job being both our first times!  I also took more photos for my blog.

Until next time!
