{Style Inspiration} Birds of a Feather

A quick little Style Inspiration for you today - along a feathered theme!

A fabulous swallows novelty print on the pattern illustration for Hollywood 1781 from the mid-40s (a version of this print is totally on my to do list!)

Leslie Caron's amazing feathered bird embellished dress in Gigi, 1958. LOVE this - I've been scouring ebay and etsy for suitable feather birds ever since I saw it!

I've posted this before, but I think it bears repetition! A 3-dimensional bird applique with velvet body and a cascading feather tail from 1922.

Lucille Ball models an outrageous bird hat in 1940.


  1. I love the bird embellishment on Leslie Caron's dress! That is beautiful. If you find a way to replicate it do show us =)

  2. Completely delightful feathered looked! I've always been drawn to birds and feathers on the fashion front, too, and just adored seeing these striking pieces.

  3. The fabrics on pattern envelopes are always so dreamy. No fair that you can't still buy them!

  4. I love Lucille Ball!!!!!!!

  5. Now I want an outrageous bird hat.


I'd love to hear your thoughts!
