I LOVE when vintage pattern illustrations are in color, as I am better able to visualise the sorts of hues that were in fashion back when they were originally circulated. One color I noticed appearing several times is what I'll call a sort of goldenrod (not as yellow as a mustard yellow?). Not long ago I happened to find a 70s blouse that is not only this very same hue but in a style that I think is very 30s. I'd still love to tackle a blouse from a vintage pattern, but this ended up being a very inexpensive find until I feel more confident sewing silky blouse fabrics!! A note on the skirt: I've been seeking a black 30s skirt for ages, but could not find anything in my size or in a style that I liked, so Kim of nudeedudee once again helped me bring my dream skirt to life. Okay, I'd better get back to work. I have TONS of vintage items coming into my shop over the next while, as I have acquired several estate lots. I am also heading to another vintage event out of town this weekend, so with any luck, I will be positively drowning in vintage lovelies for Adeline's Attic. Stay tuned... aaaand, if you are on the hunt for something specific for your own vintage wardrobe, don't hesitate to pass your wish list on to me, so that I can keep an eye out for your dream frock when I'm out "hunting."
