Fancy Friday's Conception!

I've always loved hoop and bustle skirts. Andrew and I were watching an old movie that featured some of the dresses I drool over and I asked him if we could dress up like that some day. His reply was "why don't we do it always?" I couldn't come up with a reasonable answer... why don't we? We don't have to have a reason or a fancy place to go just to dress up like that, right? 


Right. *Personally I'm looking forward to wearing a hoop skirt to a picnic in the park!*


So he proposed the idea for "Fancy Friday" once a month! I have the greatest husband in the world. So here are a few lovelies that inspire me for "Fancy Friday"!

I'm wondering how hard it would be to make a lovely dress like the ones above? I'm off to go pattern shopping. I'm so excited! Happy Sunday!

The dresses you've featured are gorgeous. My favorite one is the last one, so practical and modern yet unique!

Okay, this is such a fun idea. If you find some sweet old school patterns gimme some info. I'll go through mine bc i have a LARGE selection of very old ones. I may have to make some fun dresses as well if I ever get the time. Thanks for the inspiration :-)
