First up is a bathing suit and sundress, perfect pattern for preparation for the summer.
The bathing costume wouldn't be suitable for wearing these days but I think the sundress would fit in quite nicely. The pattern is well used which does make me wonder who made it and where they went in it...if only patterns could talk.
Next up is a Marian Martin pattern for a dressing gown and pyjamas, sent out from New York to Florida.
I may or may not have put this pattern on one side in preparation for some little gifts in December. I love the romance and the history combined in old patterns, a thought provoking few moments of its life before entering the world of Mamas Mercantile to be stored and cherished forever.
The thrill is in the hunt so happy hunting.
