|Plaid mini with knee-high boots! Perfect!|
|White nail polish! How posh!|
|These two are just too cute!|
|Nice sweater, guy.|
Those two are from 1965 and 1966. Here is a real find- a pattern book from '54!
|Ooh la la! Love the bolero!|
|Imagine the undergarments required to do that to your waist! |
"Quick! Get the shot before I pass out!"
The Bernat book is a bit wrinkly, but for 25 cents it was worth buying just to share the great photos.
Next, I meandered over to the place where the sewing books are usually kept. Here I found more treasures.
|From 1940 and in fabulous condition!|
This info on cuffs reminded me of the article on Chanel's cuff variation in the recent issue of Threads
Inside the orange book, I found a recipe tear out from Better Homes and Gardens dated 1947 and a tape measure marked Compliments of the Fashion Department- Woman's Home Companion. The monthly magazine was published until 1957.
I also found a McCall's sewing book from 1965.
|Heaven knows I could use help styling my wardrobe!|
All of the paper finds were very cool, and like I said, they were a quarter each! Even the sewing guides! So, needless to say, I left the store feeling particularly satisfied that I had scored some more goodies to hoard. Then, at the next shop, I found these- the whole lot of them- for 75 cents!
Too cute, right?! Okay, enough gloating for one day! I found a couple of other things, but lest you think I am a total pack rat, I am keeping them to myself!
