State Fair Costumes

I've been watching a lot of classic musical lately with my mom and sister. We've enjoyed such films as Oklahoma!, Singin' In The Rain, Hello Dolly! and State Fair. I enjoy not only the clean stories, fun songs and talented dancing in these films but also the costumes are always lovely!

I know I haven't posted a lot about costumes on here but they are a major part of what give films and such the old-fashioned charm! Here are a sampling of some of the lovely dresses the main character Margy Frake wears in the 1945 movie State Fair.

House cleaning/trip packing blouse and skirt with cute apron over top. Sweet and frilly.

Date night dress. A little more laced up and looks a bit like a school uniform but very lovely cute.

I love the color and pretty floral embroidery on this pretty feminine dress. The cut is a bit odd but perfect on her slender figure.

Fair dress, this is my favorite! I love the color and design of this sweet dress!

Back view of the fair dress, so lovely!

Pickles and preserves dress. Yes those are cherries on the front of her dress! A bit excentic but so lovely!

Love the cut and colors of this dress and actress Jeanne Crain is just beautiful!

Here's a couple songs from the film that are sweet and fun. Lovely to see some of the outfits the extras are wearing too. I'm not always a fan of more modern 40's and 50's outfits but these are so modest and feminine!

It's A Grand Night For Singing!

Isn't It Kinda Fun

What are some of your favorite musicals?

Lovely! I was just watching State Fair last night and admiring the costumes. My favorite is one you didn't post, the white and green dress Margy is wearing when she waits for Pat at the Ferris wheel and he doesn't show up. I've been looking for a pattern for that dress but can't find one!
