Butterick 5925 High Waisted Dress & Coat / ca. 1970

Wishing everyone a wonderful weekend.  August is here - perfect time to go to the lake or river.  Whether boating or fishing or picnicing with family and friends it's summer time so go outside and enjoy the sun.  But - remember the sun block and wear a hat!
If you haven't read the book or seen Marcus Luttrell being interviewed I highly recommend reading the book Lone Survivor.  A true American hero.  I am looking forward to seeing the movie which Marcus says is absolutely accurate - that it is exactly what he sees in his dreams every night.  This is a picture of the four Seals with Marcus on the right.  A link to the movie trailer is  below.
This is a true mod fashion statement outfit - Butterick 5925 High Waisted Dress & Coat / ca. 1970.  It has everything you need for a cool fall or winter day when you are being stylish.

You know when a pattern includes the description "frock" it is old!  Mail Order 8121 Elegantly Tailored Frock / ca. 1940's.  The shoulder tucks are truly elegant.

Not old but really useful is this Simplicity 9868 Oversized Top & Slim Boho Pants 1990 which is multi-sized from size 6 to size 24.  The drawstring top is just darling.

That's it for today!  Got finished early and now off to do chores.  Ick.  Laundry, cleaning, etc.
