OMG I love this costume so much! After cutting out fabric for a regular USO dress for a friend, I decided to cut out fabric for a lead variant for myself as well.
The base dress is the Blue Bodice variant (there were also Red and White lead variants). I have two sets of lapels and a hat and helmet which allow this ONE dress to become three different costumes! This one is from the NYC dance number where the three leads are on the motorcycle being held up by Cap.
I drafted the bolero pattern based off one I already owned and altered the front lines to it matched up with the bodice shape. This version also has a sequined lapel to go with the sequin bolero. The Bolero snaps to the bodice neck and along the front 'V' to keep it from shifting. The lapel then snaps onto the bolero.
The helmet was an unissued metal helmet from the 1960's. I used Rustoleum to paint it blue (two coats) and then hand painted the 'A', and finished with a matte top coat.
I decided on a wig for this costume because it was much more convenient than having to try and curl my own hair, only to have it fall out due to the humidity.
