Fashion Sticker Book
I love imposing my love of historical costumes on Penelope. Penelope loves stickers and pretty dresses. This all makes this book – Fashion Long Ago — a darn successful purchase.
We were looking at the book yesterday when one particular dress popped out. From the 1950s section, I saw a dress I actually recognized! It's the Horrockses Day Dress from the V&A Golden Age of Couture exhibit (they have a printable version of that dress pattern available online.) There it was, in glorious sticker form.
I'm not sure how much she — as a three year-old — appreciates the fact that the dress in the sticker book was an actual dress I could show her online. However, it's pretty neat to see my world flow into her world. Someone behind those stickers truly appreciated the details. I can only imagine that I could blow Penelope's mind by making my own version1 of the dress.
1. Some gals attending the UK meetup are making their own versions of the Horrockses dress. Yay!
