Meet Lauren of Wearing History

Today, I'd like to introduce you to the lovely Lauren of Wearing History.  Lauren is a costume historian, blogger and the owner and designer of the Wearing History line of sewing patterns based on vintage and historical styles.

Lauren recently wore this 1930s inspired dress and cape to Costume College.  The theme for this year's Gala was "The Golden Age of Hollywood" and Lauren made this 30s inspired dress to wear.  Yes, she MADE it!!!!!  The sheer outer layer is gold netting with spangles.  The lining is made from the gold metallic crepe fabric I have for sale in my SewHallie Etsy shop.  Incredible, isn't it?  You can read more about Lauren's dress and cape and get inspired to sew your own dress at her Wearing History Blog.  Thanks Lauren!  You look fabulous!
