Vogue 6830 Fifth Avenue Dress with Double Collar / ca. 1949

Found a number of old Vogue patterns and this is my favorite:  Vogue 6830 Fifth Avenue Dress with Double Collar / ca. 1949- it is missing the belt piece but truly - who cares?  The most meaningless piece in the world LOL.  A double collar in front and single in back.  Very high society!

Had a fun time camping.  Weather was in the 90's so this is the last trip until next fall.  Sadly most of our friends couldn't make this last outing but we are hoping they can come for a visit this summer and go out in the boat with us.  Our friends Jeff & Ronna and Martin and his daughter came last year and had so much fun they are coming back the weekend after Memorial Weekend.  Off roading in the winter and boating in the summer.

I'm putting in a link to a 1980's pattern for the heck of it - what a neat style for this dress.  It's a bit Holly Golightly -
Simplicity 8349 Spritely Dress with Shoulder Buttons 1987 and I have it in two sizes.  Very rare.  Have a feeling these will go fast as they are so unique.

The featured new pattern is McCall's 9293 Playful Tie Front Pants & Skirt 1998 which I had last year and found another one.  It went fast too so if it suits you get there quick!

Our county fair starts later this week.  It doesn't compare to the big ones like LA County but it's quite fun and always a treat to see and touch and play with all the animals.  I have to pet each and every pig, sheep, goat, etc.

Hope you all are having a great spring and end of cold season at long last.  Spring is in the air here too.
