“The Boy Next Door”

Meet Me In St. Louis 4

This is the second outfit that I have made from the film “Meet Me In St. Louis”.  When I first started thinking about sewing for Gene in 2003, I wanted to make all the outfits from the movie.  I made the Trolley outfit in 2009, it was a lot of work.  This outfit wasn’t so bad once I figured out the design.


While I was making the pattern, I noticed that the stripes in the skirt were thicker than the stripes in the bodice.


You can really see the difference in the stripes in this photo.  I have not idea why the stripes are green in this photo.  The stripes also look like they get thinner the closer they get to the waist.

There was no way I was going to find fabric like that so I just used a blue stripe.


Here is my lame attempt at using props.
