Butterick 5608 Awesome "Short Swaggerish Topper" / ca. 1951

Two featured "vintage" patterns today the first of which is:  McCall's 6576 Sizzling T-Back Halter Dress / Late 1970's and then there's Butterick 5608 Awesome "Short Swaggerish Topper" / ca. 1951.  Two wildly different styles and eras but both unique for their time and quite wearable today.

The McCall's is a very sought after pattern.  If you have a summer cocktail party or special event you are looking for something to wear - oh this is it.

The "Swagger" coat is a cute "Lucy" look.  Very tented and so versatile.  Get ready for next fall and the first cold spell with this eye catching coat.

Butterick came out with a series of "retro" patterns and I swear I had this in a 2000's edition but don't any longer.  This is the original one though!

A big thank you to Nancy for forwarding this fun picture to me.  It's of Queen Elizabeth and I say this old gal has got to change her style! 

Featured new is another extremely sought after pattern: 
Got to make this in red or plum colored velveteen.  Very yummy indeed.
