The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel Sewalong- Inspiration Images and a hashtag!

I know, I know, what even IS a sewalong without a hashtag? What is ANYTHING without a hashtag? Good lord, what lives we lead. Of course there are many options, here. #sewingsusie, #midgemakes, #rosesturn #joelsjumpers, I’m not making one for Abe because we all know he would find it RIDICULOUS, and so on. But I think we should go with #makingmaisel, and I’m running this thing, so what I say goes!#MAKINGMAISEL it is! Use away!

So this is a little bit of an inspiration post, with some of the vintage garments I found images of that I think would be right at home with the Maisel wardrobe. I’m planning on making at least two things for this sewalong, something that recreates a Maisel costume, and something that is inspired by the world of Maisel, and you should feel free to re-create, or be inspired by, both are great!

Oh, all that outwear Midge has, it’s to die for!

But of course, Midge’s casual wear is great.

This reminds me of Midge’s work attire.

Can’t you see Rose in this?

Or this?

Another Midge work ensemble idea.

Oh love it. Look at those details, the buttons, this is a wrap dress, can you believe it?

This reminds me of a print Midge wears in a summer flashback.

Midge loves a grey, and so do I!

Oh, god, all this outerwear forever.

That bodice reminds me of her dinner party dress.

For those trying to copy Susie, 1950’s Beatnik culture is a good place to go a lookin’ for information.

The original.

 

I’ll be out with another post soon with contemporary patterns with vintage twists that might be useful when trying to replicate or be inspired by the show. Until then, I would love to hear your ideas!
