Today I received a vintage pattern in the mail that I had ordered (I know, I'm doing a little too much of buying patterns and not enough sewing - more on that in another post). The seller of this pattern was not only awesome enough to have a stash of lovely 1930's patterns that she was selling at a reasonable price with modest shipping charges - she sent me an little surprise with my pattern. How sweet is that?
My little surprise was a six page Hollywood Patterns of Youth pamphlet from 1939. It has some really beautiful pictures. And what kind of blogger would I be if I did not share these images with you?
|Debbie from My Sew Happy Place has been posting jumpers lately, perhaps that|
is why the jumper on the far left has caught my eye.
|The strapless number is darling, if you took off some length it would be a great sundress.|
|The jacket/dress combo second from the last is my favorite.|
I love the way the bow peeps out over the collar of the jacket, and how it opens to show some of the dress.
|I love the extra details that vintage patterns add - buttons down the front,|
interesting sleeves, little bows, sashes . . .
|I don't think I could pull it off, but the overall-shorts could be cute.|
Have you come across any wonderful surprises in your week? What details of these dresses have caught your eye?
Live the moment, love life!
