A to Z – 2023 – Letter C

A to Z – 2023 – Letter C  April Gone Rogue Badge

***

What do you know … it’s April again, and time for the A to Z Blog Challenge. We post something on our blog each day of the month (except Sundays), starting with letter A, then keep going each day with the next letter. It’s fun. I’ve done it for a lot of years. In fact …

This A to Z – 2023 will be my 10 year anniversary of participating! Yay!

I’m not going with any dedicated theme but will post about random things. I may revisit an older A to Z posting, or make up something new. I guess you could say it’s a grab bag of topics.

Coloring book page I did, of two ladies modeling their dresses, one blue and is calf length and has a flouncy neckline bow. The other lady’s dress is knee length and pink, with ruffles around the neck, and has a belt at the waist.

My caption:

Catherine and Constance continued 50s couture  even into the 60s. Their cultured coifs and conservative clothes were comfortable to them.

Flower of the Day – Red Flowers on Hats

***

Flowers as a decoration on hats have been very popular throughout the ages.

The first photo shows a deep red hat with a large group of red flowers on a white mannequin head. I saw this in an antique store.

The next one is a cat wearing a red hat with a flower on the top brim. It is in a coloring book I have.

Today Cee wants us to consider fashion.

It’s fun to look back at how fashions come and go over the years.

The first photos are from a coloring book I have that show fashions from the 1950s. There were lots of prints in fabrics, and women wore dresses a lot of the time. These shown have fitted tops and mid-calf poofy skirts.

A lot of the time people would sew their own clothes from paper patterns. I know I did. I took home making in school, where we learned to use a sewing machine, and work from these kind of patterns.

This is a photo of one of my patterns to make aprons.

A visit to an antique store had lots of old fashioned fashion clothes. I don’t know from what era these were from, but the clothes were very fancy looking. The red dress was so pretty, and the mannequin was wearing a red hat, too. Hats were very popular back then. There were many racks of fancy dresses to look at or buy.
