Just a quick reminder that I am giving away some fabulous patterns (one from each decade) to celebrate having 100 followers…..
The giveaway ends this week…so come on over to my blog to check it out.
The patterns in the giveaway are…
From 1938 is McCall pattern #9641 for a jumper or suspender skirt in a size 14 (Bust 32). I love McCall and this pattern is no exception. I adore the detail on the back of the suspender skirt:
From the 1940’s is this wonderful pattern from Superior Patterns #9780 in a size 20 or 38 Bust. I absolutely love contrast details in vintage patterns–check out the great collar and cuff contrasting opportunities:
Speaking of contrast, the 1950’s pattern is Advance #6353 in size 16 or Bust 34. I love the contrasting on this dress, especially view 1. Also check out the trim detail and wing tip cuffs on the short-sleeved version:
Moving right along to the 1960’s and Simplicity #4355 with a one-piece va-va-voom dress and boat neck coat. This is a size 16 or Bust 36. The epitome of the 1960’s look. I love the detail on the dress collar:
And from the 1970’s is this amazing Simplicity shirt #8299 in size 12 or Bust 32. If you’ve never ventured into vintage sewing before, never fear…this is a “how to sew pattern” that includes a tissue lesson-chart on how to set in sleeves. I absolutely love the large collars, the buttoned cuffs and the slightly billowy sleeves. View 1 even includes an ascot tie:
