I've had some quick stitch ups for work clothing. Easy peasy! This straight skirt has a side zipper, is lined and has no waistband. I can whip one up in an evening. Now that I've been looking through vintage patterns though, I think I'd like a nice pencil skirt with a wide waistband. This is McCalls 3341 with a quick and dirty machine hem.
Some of the bloggers out there have the guts to tackle a vintage swimsuit. I can't say that I'm one of them. While I've seen some truly beautiful bathing beauties, this one is my favorite. She is my mother, 1949. My aunt is the cutie in the background sporting the red lips. Happy Mother's Day, Mom! You are truly a woman with great style!
