Top Hats and Tuxes - Inspiration



Today I'm inspired by the dapper look of top hats and tuxedos.  Does anyone but me miss the days when men dressed to the nines to go out?  I love movies from the thirties and forties when a night out meant a tux for the man and an evening gown for the lady at a nightclub with dinner and dancing.




Now the only guy you see in a top hat are these guys.  Sigh

Anyhoo I'm inspired to make top hats for baby boys for my Etsy shop.  So that's what I'm working on this weekend and I hope to have them in the shop this week.

I'm always looking for cute patterns for baby boys because I feel it's harder to find  cute things for them.  And I have two grandsons.  My daughter is preggers again and we're all "Thinking Pink", except for  my 5 year old grandson who told his mother :  "I hope you have a boy.  I don't want all that girly stuff in the house."  LOL

  14. I totally miss the days when men dressed up- and women too! I love the old movies where everyone is totally dressed to the nines for dinner every night. What would that be like?!? I'm so jealous reading this! It makes me want to go travel so much! I haven't been to Ireland but we visited Scotland a few years ago and it was BEAUTIFUL! Just found your blog and have enjoyed getting to know you better. Hope you don't mind if I follow along!
