McCall's 3242 Outdoorsy Retro Jacket 1955

McCall's 3242 Outdoorsy Retro Jacket 1955 - maybe not glam but useful and I keep picturing Carole Lombard wearing this style.  Flannel, denim, poplin, linen, gingham, corduroy are suggested fabrics.  A nice range of possibilities for checks or stripes or whatever strikes your fancy or keep it plain.

Want a peek at my pattern room?  Here's a pic of the left half and the right half looks as devastated as the left.  That ladder peeking out comes in mighty handy!

Some of the bins are "to list" some are numerically ordered costume patterns because I ran out of room in the shelves.  Truly I define it as "organized chaos" - you be the judge.  One thing I do know - the kitties love to hide in there and make me think they got out somehow and while I go around the house inside and out calling their names they stay hidden.  Monsters.

Featured new is a Kwik Sew :  Kwik Sew 2822 Luscious Shortie Nightgown & Robe 1999 a real eye pleaser.  It looks very hippie 60's to me.  More Kwik Sew Patterns here

My sewing/quilting room looks like your pattern room. My stacks of bins go all the way around the room and down the hall. But not to the ceiling. Biscuit usually "hides" on top near the heat register.

Love this jacket. Lauren Bacall could wear it too...

I've tripped over the bins in the hallway one too many times in the middle of the night - so they get piled in the "pattern room" so I have to endanger my life by being buried under the falling bins - hee. Oh yeah Lauren for sure had that tomboy look at times too
