McCall's 3756 Career Making Ladies' Two-Piece Suit Dress 1956
McCall's 3756 Career Making Ladies' Two-Piece Suit Dress 1956 one of two very special styles featured today. This might be a "two-piece" dress but it's a wiggle dress in my eye. Now because it's "two-piece" it can also be a "pencil skirt" by itself. Decisions decisions.
Next is one that is scarce, and the envelope pretty pathetic, and the pieces are cut, a bit worn but entirely useable. Just too dang pretty to not list at a deal price! Another "wiggle" dress - and I must admit I do love that "sheath" look from the late 50's to early 60's.
Simplicity 2564 Sensational Sheath Dress / ca. 1958, with pretty ribbon affect at bodice and waist-hip area. Nicely seamed waistline to accentuate your figure. Sunsational sleeveless beauty.
Two days ago I prepped some tomatoes, thick slices of Romas, and put them in the dehydrator for 24 hours. I wanted to make my own "sun dried tomatoes" without actually putting them in the sun. They are now in a big jar and in a week or so I will see if they are any good - grin. Wish me luck. Here's the recipe or instructions if you are curious. SUN DRIED TOMATOES
