I am a fashion stylist, and this is such a huge problem for all of my clients. I don’t know why the manufacturers think everyone is fat with wide calves. There are just as many skinny girls with thin calves. I am so tired of searching for thin-calf boots that I have decided to start my own line tailored just for us pencil-legged fashionistas.

If you are a skilled dressmaker, you can copy this look and make it your own. Butterick pattern 5779 is a close approximation to the style. There are fewer seams than in the Carolina Herrera original and there is no pin tucking on the side panels of the bodice, but the pattern is otherwise very similar. By sewing pin tucks in a small amount of the fashion fabric and cutting the side front bodice pieces from that fabric, the home dressmaker could achieve a very close copy of Bella’s dress from the movie.
Dorothy is a new version of the 1950s-style Blanche dress (above), and features a fuller, longer skirt for a soft romantic look. A really versatile dress, Dorothy can work in so many different ways: I’ve shown it here in ivory silk and corded lace, using the beautiful border for the sleeve and hem. Buttercup has long, dark blonde hair which has no bangs or fringe and is parted in the middle. For her red riding habit or gown, she has loose waves in hair long hair (looks like it was crimped) and the side strands are taken back away from her face and tied at the back with a simple hair knot. The styling looks very similar to this costume wig which you could tie back a few side strands on. If you have long blonde hair then you could style it yourself or look for a good quality plain hair wig and style it yourself. Thin/Tall/Slim women can choose an empire or A-line dress to give the observer a more curvy look. Or you have the option to accentuate your slim figure with embellishments on the dress and a beautiful cut out back.

The other painting we will examine is by Peter Paul Rubens and it is also named The Woman At Her Toilet. Both of the women would be considered plus size according to today’s standards. Something went wrong, we’re working hard to fix it so please try again in a second or two. This skirt length graph, as Professor Nystrom explains, is not an accurate representation of what really happened, as it only represents for any given year or month, not the average length of skirts actually worn, but the length of the skirt which the arbiters of fashion, affected by the interests of manufacturers of dress goods, tried to influence women to wear. In actual fact, the dip between 1921 and 1924 was very slight. Paris designers and dressmakers predicted the return of longer skirts, the American stylists and manufacturers followed their lead, the stores bought the longer skirts and tried to sell them, but women kept on buying the shortest skirts they could find. During the fall of 1923 and the spring of 1924, manufacturers received numerous complaints from retailers that skirts needed to be shorter. Shorter they finally were, and still shorter again. Knee-length dresses proved to be exactly what women wanted. The unlucky manufacturers tried everything possible to change the fashion. Despite their best efforts however, the knee-length skirt remained standard until the 1920’s decade was approaching its end.

Wedding gowns shifted course once again in the 1960s, the last era that is truly considered to be vintage at this point. Skirts slimmed down and tight girdles were discarded. The nipped in waist that was the gold standard of 1950s fashion was replaced by empire waisted gowns, with skirts that fell from a seam under the bust. A more exaggerated version of this was the baby doll style, which fell full from above the bust, completely eliminating the womanly figure underneath it. This was a result of both the youth culture of the 60s and the rebellion against the strict fashions of the 1950s. By the end of the decade, some brides were even wearing mod minidresses, although it was a bit too edgy for middle America. To cap off the night, we danced all night long to modern pop/techno music performed by a Khmer band. It was so much fun dancing under the stars (the dance floor and stage were not under a tent), and the party wound down by 11 pm. Some of the German wedding customs begin long before the bride and groom ever meet. There is a very old tradition that when a baby girl is born, her family should plant several trees in her honor. At the time of her engagement, the trees are cut down to pay for her dowry (this old custom is probably not so widespread in modern times!). Another tradition is that before she is engaged, a young woman begins saving pennies. Those pennies will one day be used to purchase her wedding shoes (hochzeit-schuhe). This tradition is meant to ensure that the marriage will start off on the right foot”. On the day of the wedding, the bride’s mother puts dill and bride into her daughter’s right shoe for luck.
