I am so very thankful to the talented photographer Gar Travis for sending me these photos of me at the Air Raid! Now I have photos to share of the outfit I wore in the evening. Yay!
Gar Travis is an extremely talented photographer. You can see more images from this event here on his website.
Coat: Vintage late 30s/early 40s gray with faux fur.
Sweater: Vintage 1940s knit top
Bolero: Vintage Angora (on which I’m wearing a vintage plastic sailor pin but you can’t see!) Hard to date, but I think it’s early 1940s, since most of the stuff from the estate were from that era.
Belt: Made by me- white linen with vintage red buckle.
Skirt: Made by me of gray wool from early 40s bias cut skirt pattern.
Vintage “L” pin: gift from friend.

My inspiration for this outfit was Betty Grable in “College Swing”, but with added layers for warmth 🙂
