Friends, the joy of living is in the giving. I haven't given away any patterns lately and, frankly, having spent yesterday at a funeral (the husband of an old and dear friend), I could use the joy.
This wonderful Vogue pattern dates from 1962. It's a vintage size 14 -- 34" bust, 36" hip. Apart from a small tear in the envelope, it's in excellent condition, complete and uncut. And in the spirit of the one-pattern wardrobe, it makes a blouse, a halter top, long pants and shorts!
Isn't it lovely? It reminds me a lot of this outfit of Audrey's, right down to the French cuffs on the blouse.
And with the shorts...
You really should have this pattern -- and now you can!
