You may remember the mysterious pattern box that I was lucky enough to receive the other day?
Well, I’ve finally been able to go through them and look at all of the fabulous-ness within! It is so much fun to open up the envelopes and smell the old paper. . . it really takes me back to when my grandmother was still alive and I would watch her sew or cook. Her name was Alice, we share the same middle name. I always thought that made us even closer than normal. ^_^
Being able to go through all of her old patterns and see what she wore really is an amazing experience. I have gone through some of her old photos and adore some of the pieces that she made. I wish I would have been able to get to this phase in my life while she was still around, but at least I have these to remember her by.
So, to start off a new series, I will be posting one pattern every few days. The first pattern is a random pull from the box. I will show the front and the back of the pattern, as well as post some brief info about what the pattern’s description says, size, etc.
Misses’ Skirt: The skirt is styled with a fitted yoke over the hip which joins to a waistband. A soft flare, seamed at either side, is released from the yoke.
Pattern includes – Primer with illustrated instructions for alterations, cutting and sewing.
