Got a quick post today as I work on my continuing foundation garment post.
I purchased these shoes from Old Pueblo Traders where they were on clearance of $20. Now, shoes from OPT can either be great, or crappy. These were in the middle. Because of the price, it wasn't worth it to return them, something I often find with shoes from there. I could write a whole screed about my experiences from there but I keep going back because they have a grand variety of old lady shoes which are a good substitute for vintage styles.
I've been wanting to do this for a while and with issue 50 if Vintageville coming out soon, there is no better time.
I've been doing Vintageville for over a year and while people love it, that's about it. So for people who want to support the comic, I'm releasing all the episodes in ten issue volumes with a color cover.
I've fixed typos and tweaked some images and formatted them for printing on standard 8x10 paper (for those that like that). The PDF is available in my Etsy store.
I've got big plans for Vintageville and I need your help to do it.
Let's delve deeper into foundation garments, shall we.
I'm going to back track a bit, and talk about what I did near the start of the previous post. I commented that I consider all things that go beneath the fashion layer to be foundation garments, and I do. Whether you are going for a 20s look, or a 40's statement, having all the right pieces that help the outer layer drape the way you want are crucial to the look.
I'm cleaning house. I'm looking through a lot of my old attempts at this topic and trying to makes since of them.
As I skim through past projects and research and other mis-steps of this nature, I've come to the conclusion that everything I attempted to make, alter, or do has resulted in mediocre faire. It's time to make that right.
