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.


Digitizing is completed.  Graphics scanned.  Currently typing and editing text for the instructions.

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.



4 of 8 pieces digitized and proofed.  Remaining pieces to be digitized, graphics to be scanned.
