October Vintage Photo Challenge

HAPPY HALLOWEEN EVERYONE! For the month of October, of course we had to do a Halloween related vintage photo, but instead of just one, we decided to do two!

Myrna Loy 1929….

Our First photo was inspired by this photo of Movie Star Myrna Loy taken in 1929. Myrna Loy had a very long and interesting life. Her breakout role in Hollywood that shot her to stardom was The Thin Man. You can read more about her HERE.

Here is the Myrna Loy Photo….

This was a close as we could get it. I should have made my hat too! LOL! I couldn’t tilt my head like Myrna because the hat kept falling off and the brim was too big! OH WELL! I did my best! 😉

I made the top shown in the photo here out of stretch velvet. I drafted the pattern myself based on a block for a leotard. Stretch velvet is a challenge to sew on, as it wants to shift and slip all over the place! Add in the fact that it is stretchy, and frustration can set in! to combat the issues with sewing on this fabric, I used a walking foot, and LOTS of pins! LOL! The walking foot is a great tool to sew on any fabric that stretches, or has a high pile (like faux fur) because it feeds the fabric evenly under the foot.

Anne Miller….

Anne Miller was also an actress. She was born Johnnie Lucille Collier, and is best remembered for her work in Hollywood classic movies such as Kiss me Kate, Easter Parade, and Too Many Girls. Lucille Ball actually discovered her dancing at a club! Could you imagine having a huge star Like Lucille Ball coming up to you and saying that they wanted you to be in films!? WOW! You can read more about Anne Miller’s life HERE.
