I am probably way late to the game on this one (given that the copyright on the website is 1999), but somehow my internet searching has finally lead me to Our Dancing Daughters, a lovely little website selling custom reproduction clothing for women from the swing era. The information about Kayre Morrison, the proprietor, was pretty sparse on the website, but a quick Facebook search revealed that we have 71 mutual friends, so this is definitely a dancer making dance-friendly reproductions. I love her drawings of the designs and I also love that in the fabric selection she includes a description of how the fabric will feel and move, making that decision a bit less daunting.

Here’s what I’m loving from Our Dancing Daughters:

Gloria - I love a keyhole and a peplum!

This one pretty much screams my name.

The Lena dress has some saucy ruching.

  1. Karye is actually the vocalist for Dean Mora’s bands ( http://morasmodern.com ) – she makes AMAZING works of vintage fashion art, but I’m not sure if she is sewing for other people these days?
