Hot off the Presses

Two new patterns in the works right now – both at various stages of completion.

First up a 1940’s Bathing Suit/Play Suit.  Even though I know it’s much too cold for this perky little outfit now – it will make a delightful addition to the wardrobe come summer.

This is a lovely pattern from the mid-194o’s, the double tie in front for the halter top is a nice, distinctive touch.

After migrating most of the inventory to our new site provider, it became clear that there were a lot of categories that we had few or no patterns in.  Imagine my surprise when I saw that we had not a single 1920’s skirt pattern available!

This pattern seems to catch the classic 1920’s styling perfectly.  And it features three options for the skirt panel insert.  A plain straight panel, a pleated panel, and a gathered draped panel.  The addition of the attached camisole to keep everything in place is found on quite a few of the 1920’s (and some of the 1930’s) patterns in the archive.
