After a great late evening of miniature golf got to work this morning bright and early. I really have to brush up on my golfing skills is all I can say! Several special patterns to choose from but I picked this Vogue 6601 from the 1960's because it is both elegant enough for evening but is casual trendy too. Tres' Jackie Kennedy styling. I think she is one of the few first ladies to ever have a fashion buzzword. Truly no one will ever be the style icon that she was.

Hi Sheila: I'm making one of the patterns from 1944 that I got from you...actually following instructions for snaps, hooks and eyes. Next time, I'll use their intructions for the "slide fastener". Love the detailing on the pattern. Have fabric to make more of the patterns as they are for wall art (these are for teeney weeney folks!!!) NancyC in CA

I'll be looking for this one on your site. Looks like one I will be very interested in. Hope that I get to see it before it is gone. I consider that I am a pickier customer than I once was, but I have been very happy with every pattern that I have gotten from you. Wish I could find the time to actually make one. Would be neat to see some of the garments actually made from these vintage patterns.

Yikes, I was having trouble signing in and publishing a comment and I now see that it got published multiple times. Please excuse. I also have the same problem with ordering stuff online, and find that many times, for whatever reason, I end up ordering the same thing at least twice, in error. Sheesh. Did this just the other day and now have two ham holders.

Cathy I had to laugh - I often have the same problem with duplicate messages - I mean how does it happen??!!
