Hello – I was so pleased to find the forum, and I’m hoping that as a new person here I can impose right off the bat. I was given a wonderful book as a child – probably 25 years ago or so – that was essentially a book of around a dozen designer outfit patterns. There was a gorgeous 2 piece top and long skirt for evening done in steel gray and dafodil yellow – a wonderful one-shoulder thing, a fantastic knt jacket done in a very deco/nouveau fan pattern, and a simply divine sundress cut from a single piece of fabric, sewn with a single spiralling seam. It tied halter style, had a v-neck, and was gathered and held at the hip with a large brooch. THIS is the pattern I so dearly want to make!
Problem is, I have lost my book, can’t remember the author, and haven’t had any luck on my searches. I am hoping that one of you will recall this book, or at least the author, and I can begin searching again, this time in a smaller haystack!
Thanks in advance –
