Really Inspired by Pin Ups!

I have always loved the look of pin up girls... not the super sexy, borderline vulgar ones but the beautiful, curvaceous and almost "empowered before their time" ones. Recently, I have just really kicked my interest up a notch and have collected some of my favorite pin up girls and sketched ideas for dresses and accessories based on these ultra cool ladies. I have found inspiration in starlets of years past and even women of today who have channeled their inner pinup. I am thinking I want to channel my inner pin up!

Katy Perry. Zooey Deschanel. Dita Von Teese. Christina Aguilera

I cannot help but find glamor and an escape from every day fashion and style in the pinups of the past. I'm wondering what it will take to infuse it with my every day and also my crafting/ sewing. I think it will take awhile to take shape and become robust but I am really looking forward to the journey!

Some of my favorite pin up art is included. All of these fall into the categories which to me really exude the awesomeness of a pinup girl... beauty, sass and a touch of sex appeal.

Some of the drawings that I did this past weekend. I am looking to create my own patterns from my own sketches. Obviously they aren't up to real fashion designers' levels but I am just sharing where my inspiration has taken me. What do you think?!
