Mostly it is the other way around. But last summer I saw a bright lime green and turquoise flower print at JoAnn's of all places. Instantly thought about a long oop Vogue blouse w/ a vee neck. Shopped the net, got the pattern and finished it w/ buttons from a trip to Paris. Wearing it this summer w/ a rte turquoise skirt.
I'd love to have this book. I've been trolling the vintage sites for an a-line skirt pattern to no avail. Fingers crossed.
What a wonderful giveaway. I'm a charter subscriber so you can imagine what a boon this would be to me. I often forget what a treasure I have until I see some reference to an older issue in an article on the net. The most recent case in point is an article about making a Chanel jacket. It has been very helpful.
Please tell me how the edge of the facing was finished. It looks very smooth and flat. Thanks.
What a great article! It brought back so many memories. One used to be able to buy something called "hem facing." It was cotton, about two inches wide with fold-overs along each long edge, not dissimilar to single-fold bias tape. My mother would eke out a few extra months on dresses of a girl who was growing like a weed. Only for every day dresses, though. Some people don't understand the logic behind making ultra-deep hems in smocked dresses but girls can get taller at the wrong times!
