Well, as I often do, I went out this weekend for one purpose, got sidetracked, and ended up doing something else altogether. What I MEANT to do was buy office supplies; what I DID was buy a bunch of vintage patterns, maybe from the '60's or early 70's - I don't know for sure, because I'm still kind of fashion-challenged. Do patterns from this period even qualify as vintage? Are they old enough? When I think vintage, I usually think 50's and earlier.
Oh well, terminology aside, what I DO know is that someone in my town had a cute little wardrobe!
I love the little ruffles on the skirt and sleeves of the 7626 - oh, how I wish these patterns were in my size, because it would give me an excuse to bust out my ruffler foot!
These two dresses are so simple and pretty, though I'm not really a fan of puffed sleeves.
My FAVORITE new pattern, though, without a doubt, is the Crazy Cat Lady Dress. Tell me this isn't the funniest thing you've ever seen! I didn't buy this pattern because I thought I'd ever want to make the dress, I bought it because the picture made me burst out laughing in the middle of Value Village.
Notice the cat that view B is gripping - maybe it's just my imagination, but doesn't the cat kind of look like he's wishing he were anywhere else? Kind of looking out of the corner of his eye, thinking "If I stay still long enough, maybe she'll put me down."
