Patterns of the Past - Sundresses


From the April, 1953 Workbasket. Patterns for sundress with capelets or jackets to make them decent enough to wear downtown were very popular.

they really are pretty, just like I remember women looking when I was a child.

OMGWTFBBQBACONDRESSANDCAPELET!

That is AWESOME! I take it this is only an ad from a magazine, and not the pattern envelope itself? Because if you actually have that pattern, I would happily pay you for a copy of it.

BTW: I'm now officially learning to sew; an apron is my first project, and will be posted it all its wonky glory. :-P
