Gene visits Whidbey Island, Pt. 2
More from the talented hands of Diane at Whidbey Island. Today’s post features an outfit that Diane created based upon an Edith Head design used in the fashion show segment of the Jane Wyman movie “Lucy Gallant” (1955). A number of 1940’s & 1950’s movies featured fashion shows as part of the storyline; this was a great way to show off the designs of the studio costumer as well as do potential movie merchandising of similar garments.
I love the rich black faux fur used on the trim and the hat; so much of the fur you see used in doll-sized fashion is too large and looks very fake. Diane’s outfit is spot-on and looks fabulous!
