Inspiration: Pushing Daisies
If you never saw the show Pushing Daisies when it originally aired in 2007, I am right there with you. I just discovered it. Good thing for me, though, cause Netflix streams the full series via instant play. There is so much to love about this show- it paints a colorful and exaggerated world full of equally colorful and cartoon-like characters; amongst mystery, an uncanny romance and really amazing pies. Just watch it. Despite all this, Pushing Daisies also has some of the prettiest vintage-inspired frocks worn by actress Anna Friel's character, Chuck. Full skirts and fitted bodices...arranged in bright florals and dreamy shades of peach, classic red, dreamy blue and, most often, yellow. Wonderful yellow. I have a weird gravitation toward all things yellow.
There are so many to drool over, really. This little number has been dancing in my head for quite some time.
I couldn't get an individual photo at full length, but you can get an idea by the top picture. I found this vintage sheet fabric from Midwest Vintage Co.
