1930s Dress

1930s Dress

Flattr this!

This entry is part 9 of 23 in the series Carondelet Historical Society Project

This was a fun dress to take pictures of! It was black with lace detail across the front. As you can tell, it fits the perfect 1930s silhouette fashion and shape. It buttoned up the back with fabric covered buttons. It was such fun to shoot! Andrea wore her grandmother’s jewelry and a random hat (not sure what period).

This was the first time that I had ever done makeup. I had previously directed the model on how to apply it, but on this shoot, I did the makeup. I remember being so nervous!

We shot some pictures in the studio, and more outdoors. My favorite are the outdoor pictures.

Professional WordPress nerd. Lover of all things older than me. I am fascinated by early 1900s labor and feminist history, and have a sporadic addiction to reading nonfiction about those things on Archive.org. I scan old photographs and ephemera when I get really super bored. On Etsy I sell vintage clothing that I got as part of an interesting trade deal a few years ago.
