Vintage Outfit-A Dress Inspired by Poirot


I've mentioned before how much I love the wonderful BBC series Poirot, based on the novels by Agatha Christie.  While the stories are always delightful and the acting is first rate the absolute best thing about the show is the clothing and the sets.   It is a perfect day dream of 1930s fashion and I am often so distracted by the clothing that I forget what the actual crime being investigated is!   The third episode of the first season, The Adventures of Johnny Waverly, had a dress that really got me drooling.

Here is the same dress updated with a new bow and worn by a different character in a later episode of the series:

I love that the Poirot series was thrifty enough to use this gorgeous everyday 1930s dress twice.   I was so in love with the dress that it got me thinking that I would really like one of my own, but since I can't sew a lick there was no way I was going to be making it myself.  Thanks to the wonderful Etsy seller Time Machine Vintage I was able to get my dream dress.  Even with the tiny blurry pictures I sent she did an amazing job re-creating the dress and I think I like my version even better then the original.  I also love how it looks with the cute 1930s hat I got from Adeline's Attic on Etsy.  If you ever want to make your own vintage cinema clothing dreams come true then Time Machine Vintage is a great place to turn.

  9. That is such a good copy, I love it! I will probably end up making my own things, can't afford to spend too much. All the outfits on Poirot look so well put together, I'm looking for a thin belt and a bag to match, saw some belts on Amazon, just what I was looking for.
