American High Style

During my recent trip to NYC we went to the  Brooklyn Museum to see the exhibit:  American High Style - Fashioning a National Collection.

Here's some of my favorites


 

 

 

 

this shoe, I love the way it folds over and think this would make a great pocket on the front of a skirt or dress!

 


 

 

 

 

the side seam detail on this jacket was wonderful the way the seam incorporates a dart not to mention all those front darts!

 


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I love the bodice on this blue dress.  However, I would add some silk organza as a modesty panel.  

 

Here's a collage of some of the museum's collection
