Bomb Girls

 

Set in the 1940s, Bomb Girls tells the remarkable stories of the women who risked their lives in a munitions factory building bombs for the Allied forces fighting on the European front. The series delves into the lives of these exceptional women – peers, friends and rivals – who find themselves thrust into new worlds and changed profoundly as they are liberated from their home and social restrictions.

What does this have to do with anything? Well, Bomb Girls, starring Meg Tilly and Jodi Balfour, has a direct tie with Tiddleywink Vintage. The original series debuted in Canada in January, but Shaw Media has picked it up and the wardrobe department has selected one—so far—of my dresses (as well as a gorgeous nightgown from the shop of my friend at Theda Bara’s Vintage Boudoir) to use in the production of the second season. Woo!
