Butterick 9512 Hollywood Starlet Casual Coordinates / ca. 1960 and can't you just picture some want to be movie star from the 1960's posing for pictures in that hooded shirt & slacks! Life or Post used to have articles about young starlets and I would hunker down in bed and peruse the pictures and dream!
While out scrounging for patterns Friday I found a rather cool book: Dictionary of American Slang. Always looking for just the right word to describe an item. Some of the ones are pretty awful - grin! But some are just right.
Found some fun 2000's women's magazines - the kind where it matters not how old it is. A super cute idea on using vintage hankies and display them instead of leaving them in a drawer. Find a cute flower bowl or vase (a narrow neck works best) and unfold the hankie, pick it up in the middle and stuff it in the vase. A pretty dresser display!
