goodbye 20s...here comes the glamorous 30s!

 I said goodbye to the young me, and with mixed feelings welcomed the 30-something woman just few weeks ago. What made all this far less dramatic was the fact that my oldest and best friend Sara had her birthday right after mine. I decided to make her accessories to mark this grand occasion. My inspiration came from the idea that 1920s was all crazy and swinging but the 1930s much more glamorous. She had a moustache theme party for her big day and so for the 20s present I made her pearls with a hairy twist. For the more grown-up look of the 30s I altered a sparkly cardigan with some fab buttons.

Below is me modelling the outfit before wrapping it up and sending it to Finland...

This is how the present looked just before the posting!
