The "Gentlemen Prefer Blondes" Project

Please excuse my extended absence - I've been a busy busy bee working hard on my ebay shop. I haven't been able to spare the time to blog or sew, but I have been dreaming up new ideas!

I've mentioned my love for the movie "Gentlemen Prefer Blondes" before - it's my all-time favourite film, and now the inspiration for a new personal project. When I've finished the pirate dress and 1950s jumper dress I'm currently working on (along with various alterations and mends on items for my store), I'm planning to make a series of outfits inspired by the costumes from the film. I got the idea from Sense & Sensibility's Titanic Project, but I won't be aiming to create actual replicas of the costumes (mostly for pratical purposes, since there's only so many occasions in life which call for a floor-length, split-to-the-thigh red sequin gown), rather make my own interpretations of the outfits.


  1. This sounds like so much fun! This movie has such a beautiful assortment of costumes. I can't wait to see what you come up with! :)

  2. Such a great idea! Can't wait to see your progress. It's one of my favourite movies too :)


  3. This is one of my favourite ever movies too, so I cannot WAIT to see the results.

    But... I think any time is the right time to wear a split to the thigh floor length red sequin evening gown, surely.

  4. Fantastic! Have you seen the Able Grable version of this. It's lovely but rather costly.


I'd love to hear your thoughts!
