McCall's 5991 La Dolce Vita Party Dress with Two Skirts 1961

My heart is about to be broken.  My old kitty who will be 17 in January is doing very badly.  I've been bawling my eyes out since 3 a.m.  Have a vet appointment today at 3:15 and may have to put her down.  Oh how they get into our hearts.

No new listings today only relists - I haven't been able to function almost.  All you pet lovers can relate I am sure.

I didn't post yesterday but did have some awesome ones I have to link to:

Top of the awesome list is this McCall's 5991 La Dolce Vita Party Dress with Two Skirts 1961- at first I thought the flapper one was the best but upon closer inspection I'm torn.

On a more casual note this Butterick 3072 Misses' Coordinates / Jacket, Blouse, Skirt & Pants / ca. 1964 with a great looking blouson blouse with drawstring.

At first glance nothing special but take another look!  Simplicity 5197 First Lady Dress with Bell Skirt / ca. 1963 - nothing but class!  Just add a pretty but plain necklace or pin - let the look speak for itself.
When I first got this next one I thought it was a child's pattern but it's not.  Definitely a misses' dress!  Mail Order WS4 Pretty Miss Sun Dress & Bolero 1940's - I know summer is gone but there's next year!
A bit newer and more casual and great for cold days or nights is this McCall's 5139 Casual Day Dress or Top & Pants + Transfer 1976 - that dress looks like a hoodie caftan to me!

From out of the 80's this is a killer:  Simplicity 8229 Fluid Flared Dress 1987 whether belted or not I want it!

Here's a "demure" wolf whistle dress with trim - McCall's 6712 Provocative Dress With Detachable Collar & Cuffs 1993 
Super cute and casual - another one that needs warm weather:  Simplicity 6599 Utterly Charming Culotte Dress / ca. 1990's
When going thru just now I realized that quite a few new 80's - 90's and 2000's put in yesterday and too many great ones to put in.  Be sure and click on the link below!

Dear Sheila, I'm so sorry to hear about your old kitty. I'm sure she has had a wonderful life and much love from her human family. Best wishes to you!

So sorry to hear about your puss cat. My Dad in New Zealand is going through the same thing with his beloved tabby. I'm sure both your kitty and Dad's had 9 wonderful lives at opposite ends of the world.

Best wishes

Oh no! So sorry about the kitty. It is so painful to lose a fur baby. They give us so much, I guess the best we can do is help them through at the end. You have all my sympathy! -K

Thank you all! I was all set to lose her but the vet ran a bunch of tests and said she is really pretty healthy - good kidneys, no infections, etc. He thought she might have a thyroid problem but test ran negative. She might have IBD or IBS an inflamed bowel problem. I'm treating her now and she is doing great! She still may have a thyroid problem so I will have to retest her. Hugs to you all who love kitties and know how they work their way into our hearts! Adele I hope your dad's tabby is doing as good as my Little Girl -
