For my Retro creations, I enjoy "frankenpatterning" (piecing together various patterns to achieve the desired result). The 1939 blue suit is a reproduction of Delysia LaFosse's suit in Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day. The 1955 light blue cocktail dress is based on a creation by Jean Desses. The skirt is made of 21 lace-edged squares. The 1940s Sailor suit is a romper playsuit with matching skirt.
