It’s week 4 of the Project Run and Play competition and I’m so excited to still be in the running! For this week’s vintage/retro inspired-style I chose the classic “Annie Hall” look that Dianne Keaton made so popular in the 70’s: menswear for women.
I took a men’s dress shirt, cut it apart, and re-tailored the pieces to fit a toddler using a dress form. I reused the collar, cuffs and buttons and made the shirt a slim fit with an extra long shirt tails to fit nicely into the pants.
The pants are fitted with an extra high waist and flair out to a wide leg. Instead of using an itchy wool suiting, I made the pants from poly/spandex pin-striped fabric reclaimed from an adult skirt…..they are soft, comfortable, and machine washable.
The Imago Gallery was the perfect setting for an “urban” shoot in the desert:
