I got a bunch of 1953-1955 Workbasket magazines from the antique store last weekend, and one of my favorite things is the pattern adverts!

You can see the whole set here, but my favorite is the one in the upper right of this one. Love that midriff & collar!

  1. I own at least one of those patterns, and I've seen a bunch more of them.

    The 9000 series numbers are Marian Martin, and the 4000 series are Anne Adams.
