Simplicity 2694 Cheeky Wrap Around Slip & Pants / ca. 1949

 
Simplicity 2694 Cheeky Wrap Around Slip & Pants / ca. 1949- the "wrap" slip is something I hadn't seen before.  Certainly makes it easy to adjust for sizing - would imagine it could also be used as a nightgown and the wrap feature would allow it to just be tossed on and tied!

When listing last week I came across the funniest pattern from Prominent Designer:  Prominent Designer A517 Fashionista Dress & Coat 1960's and yes the pattern is awesome but I couldn't stop laughing over the "hat" on her head.  WTH?  I kept picturing her wanting to have her hands free and nowhere else to put it so she put it on her head.  I know Erin at Dressaday enjoys these kooky patterns and she did get a kick out of it and even did a blog about it:  Dressaday Link

Here is the picture itself:




Featured new is:  McCall's 6113 Wisply Halter Dress 2010 that brings to mind a "handkerchief" blouse or dress.  Great for vacations at the beach.
