Simplicity 4906 Wonderful Wartime Dress / ca. 1944 and can't you just see someone doing the boogie woogie in this - great visual! Too bad the hat isn't included in the pattern - can't decide if it's retro chic or just plain ugly. Been on a scanning frenzy - have pics for tomorrow and Thursday and will take my scanner and laptop camping and do scanning there just to get ahead. Start the new year off right. Okay well camping is not exactly what we do - no tent just a 40' 5th wheel with a garage for the off road car - it's called a "Toy Box" - Queen size bed, walk in shower, microwave, flat screen tv and DirecTV hookup - the works. I already did the tent thing, I'm too old to sleep in the dirt anymore.

I will be having A SALE for End of Year! It will start Thursday. I haven't figured out the coupon code yet so stay tuned. It will be for 15% off.

Here's what went in today:

Maybe it's wartime chic...ala Red Cross or a nod to women in uniform. You know, like "sailor dresses"...

It does look a bit Red Cross or at least the hat does. My mom was a nurse in the 40's and I remember seeing pics of her in her starched white uniform and stiffy hat - now they wear tacky scrubs and even the nurses look like they scrub toilets. Ah those were the days!
