Like the December issue, the May issue starts out with some lingerie and sleep wear. There are a lot of feminine details like bows, lace and embroidery. The second half of the patterns are beach wear; I love the way scenes are set up. Take a peak and let me know if anything catches your fancy.
|Nightgowns and slips.|
|More nightgowns. I think that 15119 looks like a cami that you or I would wear today.|
|While the top right (15122) pair of pajamas looks cute, 15121 just looks odd.|
|Why is it that men's wear just seems odd?|
|Awe, isn't the little chunker in the middle too adorable?|
|I guess there was a time when people wore robes to the beach?|
|The dress at bottom right is another one of my favorites. I probably wouldn't make the cape, but I love the pockets and side buttons.|
|This is just bad birth control. I want a bunch of little girls so I can dress them up like this.|
Have any of the images here inspired you to sew something? What do you think of the family-style approach with this magazine? I know today that we can buy patterns for the whole family, but I feel like more often books (or magazines) are made with a target gender and age in mind - which would be mostly women.
Live in this moment and love life!
