SW Pattern Swap Loot

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!

    I didn’t know we had a swap going on. Dang, I so missed out! I do not get on the internet enough to ever know what is going on…..

      Aww I’m sorry. Yeah, over in the “Community” boards they’ll sometimes organize something. Probably they’ll do another one or two before the year is up.
