Butterick 8008 Chore Time Smock Top / ca. 1939

A quick reminder to stay tuned next Wednesday.  I will be going camping over the holiday weekend so starting Thursday thru Monday will be a big sale.   The coupon code will go in Thursday morning when we leave!

Some highlight vintage patterns starts with a real oldie: Butterick 8008 Chore Time Smock Top / ca. 1939  a very fashionable item for working in a lab or kitchen!  I imagine it could also just be used for a loose fitting top or even for maternity.
Now for a more dressy look:  Simplicity 4347 Showy One-Piece Dress with Two Skirts / ca. 1962 - it's always hard to decide whether straight or flared skirt?

Newer patterns start out with Simplicity 2846 Tip Top Dress or Mini-Dress with Sleeve Variations 2008 and a lovely "starburst" look to the neckline.

A warm fleece pullover that I have in several sizes - just in time for cool weather and priced just right too!:  McCall's 9582 Unisex Pullover Polar Fleece Top & Hat 1998
