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.
Me too... totally scared to use strech fabric
I have no idea how everyone thinks of so many theme ideas, I would run out after a month!
I like the nightwear idea, pyjamas are pretty much the only thing I have managed to sew so far, but they fit really well and are super comfy.
A Dior theme would be nice, maybe charting some of their influences on post-war fashion? I am hoping to try make some lingerie too, but I'm not sure about posting pictures! hehe
A non-clothing theme could be interesting, maybe home furnishings or accessories like handbags. I would love to see a 'Stepford Wives' theme, although having to do all of the household chores would be optional!
