A vintage outfit I made for a 1930s picnic last month! Though the blouse is modern, the hat is from the late 20s/early 30s, and the suspender skirt was made by me using Advance 4780 (published in 1946).
You can see my tutorial on how I graded up this skirt pattern (originally, it was a bit too small) here: annaintechnicolor.wordpress.com/2012/08/21/tutorial-gradi…
