I just love the classic styles of the fifties. Rock and Roll was just getting its start and sock-hops, bebops and corner malt shops were all the rage. I love the poodle skirts and sweaters. This is my take on that fashion statement.
I have made a circle skirt with a simple waist band and snap closure and appliqued the felt poodle on, then hand embroidered the collar and leash using metallic thread and glass beads. I hand knit the sweaters in a cardigan style that really button. Other sweaters used are made with the softest knit fabric and close with snaps in the back.
