Are you an apron lover? This is the blue ribbon winner of aprons: Advance 5288 Pretty as a Picture Homemaker Apron / ca. 1949 - that little sweetheart bib is just eye candy.
This one is factory folded and is a Marian pattern! Did she have style or what?!
1940's Apron Patterns
Another Marian lovely is this Advance 2221 Super Duper Pre-War Blouse / ca.1940 with lovely shoulder and waist darts and two little penny pockets.
The featured new is for some reason one that makes me think of a "Dominatrix" style with that "dog collar" look - I am demented.
Strapless in front, backwards halter, tight as can be - ooh la la!
Here is a new "retro" blouse pattern that is a replica of a 1918 style blouse: Folkwear 210 Feminine WW1 Armistice Blouse 1981
Armistice was in November 1918 - I know because my grandfather died just days before Armistice and is buried in France.
