Simplicity 3540 Mesmerizing Dress, Stole & Overskirt / ca. 1951

Simplicity 3540 Mesmerizing Dress, Stole & Overskirt / ca. 1951 with an interesting "apron" overskirt.  One hot summer evening this outfit will shine!

Stay tuned this week.  We are leaving early Thursday for what will probably be our last Glamis camping trip.  Starting in April it's most often getting too hot for comfort.  If it stays cooler then we may make one more trip but oh well in any event a 4 day weekend calls for a sale!  It will be 15% for anyone not a reader but 20% for you so keep an eye out for your special coupon code.

Thank you Pati for sharing how wonderfully McCall's 4395 Jayne Mansfield Sailor Collar Dress / ca. 1956 came together when she made it.
Here is the pattern itself along with the picture I found on the internet of Jayne Mansfield wearing it.  Va Va Voom.

Here are the fabulous results and wow am I impressed not just with the skill of recreating this delicious dress but how well Pati wears it!
Does she look like a Navy Nurse or what?  I can see her going patient to patient and each male patient's blood pressure skyrockets!  I am so impressed!

The featured new is:  Vogue 9833 Business or Pleasure "Coat" Dress 1987 a very neat looking coatdress.
