Since I don’t live on either coast, (nor in Britain where they seem to have a swap every month!) I signed up to do a by-mail pattern swap organized by Tina C. at the Sew Weekly. We all gave our measurements and likes/dislikes.
Let me just say, my swap partner CAME THROUGH! I opened the envelope and the top pattern was Simplicity 2087 from 1957.
SO CUTE! I absolutely love the sleeveless top, and shorts! and skirt!! I’m very fond of the bateau neckline so I’m ecstatic to finally have a pattern for it. And I could totally make some coordinated separates.
Then the second pattern (yes, I got TWO!) was Simplicity 5698 from 1964.
Evening wear! The dress is a classic, and the little over-blouse could be so chic. I wonder if we’ll have an evening wear challenge at SW. I’m so doing this if we do!
