As a start, I have created some skirts, a sweater and a cool corseted top and plan to have a few more designs available over the next couple of months. The sizes on the skirts run from 12 to 18, the sweater is an x-large and the blouse/top is also an x-large. My plan is to do a few more tops as well as a dress or two, if I can find the raw materials to fit the bill. I will have the pieces featured in this posting and more at the Swap Meet & Motorcycle Info Day at Capital City Bikers Church in Ottawa on May 4th, 2013.
In the meantime, if there is anything specific in the pinup or rockabilly style that you have been searching for, please let meknow. A few people have mentioned the frustration they face from having to order clothing in larger sizes online without being able to try it on and also get a hands on feel for the quality of the fabrics and finishes before they purchase. It seems to be especially challenging when searching for a very definite fashion statement such as pinup and rockabilly. There is also the negative when ordering a mass produced garment online that the designs do not fulfill the need of those wanting a one of a kind piece.
My hope is that Bombshell Revival can provide an answer to these issues to all you ladies in Ottawa (and beyond) who would relish the opportunity to, for once, try on and purchase an original and quality pinup or rockabilly piece in their size.
