Featured pattern today makes my eyes bug out: McCall's 9740 Romantic Candlelight Dinner Dress 1954
Sweet bodice with scoopy neckline - that pinch waist and then a full skirt. Sigh .... when I researched this pattern I couldn't find another one anywhere.
A "shout out" to Allyn for her Facebook posting of the CSA boxes she gets. I thought WTH? Went online and now am hooked. There seem to be alot of "local" harvest or farmer's market websites where you can go and find a location near you. I've got a few to pick from here in Yuma and if you are interested here is one of the websites:
Local Harvest / Farmer's Market Site
There is everything from honey to chocolates to soaps and more. Click on the "shop" button and be amazed. I am about to order some Lavender Honey which is so tasty with a fruit salad. If you haven't had lavender honey give it a shot. Great with tea also.
Another rare beauty is this Advance 4826 Flirty Starlet Dress & Bolero / ca. 1948 and yes it's hard to find too because I googled it just today. What's funny is that I had two of this one already a few years ago. This pattern came out circa 1948 and had a couple of different color covers. You can see the other pattern covers at the Vintage Pattern Wikia
Another one I get off and on is pretty popular as it always goes out of stock quickly: Simplicity 2196 Purrrrfect Pencil Skirt / ca. 1957
Nothing like 1950's Skirts - my favorite era for skirts. Sadly my era for skirts was the 60's and having never been into mini skirts or peasant skirts it was a lost decade. Okay just kidding!
For upper class fashions this Simplicity 2852 One of a Kind Dress & Coat / ca. 1959 just reeks class.
Simplicity Slenderette Patterns have such slenderizing styles! Doh - that's why they call them "slenderettes" ...
Some great Vogue patterns put in today - unique styes on three of them that really jazzed me. The Vogue 7616 Lean Dress, Top & Skirt 2002 as well as the Vogue 8285 Straight Pullover Dress, Top & Skirt 1992 and last but not least this very rare Vogue 9268 Adorable Eye Candy Dress 1995
HAVE A WONDERFUL WEEKEND!
