Simplicity 2335 Wide & Wonderful Skirt with Cummerbund / ca. 1958

Just for skirt lovers this elegant Simplicity 2335 Wide & Wonderful Skirt with Cummerbund / ca. 1958 - the fabrics recommended are visually a treat:  Velvetee, Brocade, Organdy, Chiffon, Crepe, Rayons, Silks, Satin .... this is no ordinary skirt!

Moonlight romance opportunity when wearing this McCall's 5770 Romantic Dress with Attached Petticoat 1961 - a glance at the fabric recommended call for printed silk or cotton, pique ... not your ordinary evening dress!  From behind lots of lovely skin exposed!

A very refined shirtwaist - Marian Martin 9126 Uptown Dress with Shoulder Tucks 1950's - I was disappointed to see what most of these older mail order patterns don't h ave fabric recommendations.  How odd.  Oh well it must be the sky is the limit - right?
Here's a classic - New York Pattern 1161 Smartly Tailored Blouse 1940's for a go with anything look.  Casual or Career.  With Pants or a Skirt.

Here's a "newish" one that caught my eye - Simplicity 9454 Tomboy Shirt-Jacket, Denim Pants & Skirt 1989 with a great western fringed shirt-jacket and skirt with fringe too.  Fabric recommendations:  Denim, synthetic suede or leather types .... I like it!
Thoughts of cold weather brings this pattern to you:  Simplicity 4356 Trendsetting Coat, Jacket, Vest & Bag 2005 with a nice big collar thrown in to pull up around cold cheeks. 
Not alot listed today - I'm taking my husband to lunch so didn't have time to put all I scanned in - but there's always Monday.  Have a wonderful weekend!
