McCall's 5005 Cosmopolitan Wiggle Dress & Jacket 1959 with a nice ooh la la dress but check out that little jacket! Skip the dress and with a cute top and a pair of jeans this jacket rocks. Some styles are truly timeless. Found a couple of very neat 50's and 60's patterns that are listed today. Dang I am tempted to try that jacket! If it's not snatched up well it may be mine! Any suggestions for fabric?

That's pique jacket if I ever saw one. (Can a person even find that kind of fabric any more?)It has a cute pucker and nice body. I remember white pique collars on dresses for years. Go for the jacket!!!

Can you tell I've been thinking about this all day? Seersucker would look crisp in your heat!!!
