About a year ago, my husband and I watched the 1941 version of Mr. and Mrs. Smith. I don't remember a lot about the movie, but I do remember the details in the costuming sent my head spinning.
There is a scene when Carole Lombard is wearing a really high-waisted skirt and a ruffled blouse poking out the top of her blazer. I just loved the way it looked and thought it would be great to have a one-piece dress that looked similar. Here's the Mrs. Smith Dress. It is made with vintage fabric (top and bottom).
