I was thinking about a theme like that last week! I was going through my patterns and found my vintage kids' superhero pattern and the lightbulb went on.
Would that include supervillains as well? muhahaha!
I like it!
This could be tricky to pull off if your favourite period film is set in any of the other centuries ie 16th, 17th, 18th, 19th etc - 'Gone with the Wind' goes to the supermarket! or 'Elizabeth (I)' at the kiddies play park! :))
I'm really into summer clothing right now as it's hotter than heck here in upstate NY and Philadelphia (two places I spend most my time these days). What about something "A day at the Seashore/Lake" or "Summer Picnic" or something with a common fabric (i.e. gingham is what springs to mind) or a color theme.
I just love Sew Weekly and I think it's just what we need to stay motivated for our projects. I haven't been on here long, but what about a particular vintage era, (such as just 1940s), a specific color (like pink), or something modeled after a First Lady's dress? It would be fun to have contests for the most authentically dressed vintage photograph, too.
