Vouge 1932, now that's a lady!

This is what I would like to look like... in an ideal world where you could ride your bicycle to work in any kind of clothes (I do love my little red 1951-bicycle!).

Maybe it would work for me as a jacket rather than a coat... I think my Marian Martin-pattern might work to create somethin similar, or at least as inspiration.

I would omit the fur on the sleeves, but the fur-collar is a great idea, don't you think?

I also really like the hat. Another hat that totally makes me want to wear hats is minnithemink's Lanvin bonnet. Only I almost always wear a bike-helmet (I wish they looked like hats instead!).

The image above is from 1932, and I found it at My Vintage Vogue.


  1. I love this picture and I REALLY love your Marian Martin pattern! It might work to create a shorter jacket from that pattern. The cuff detail is amazing....

  2. ps. can I add your blog to my blog list?

  3. very nice coat=) I like this collar pattern and cuffes.
