Check out that Bow. Could it be that I’ve found a tasteful one? Done sharply, pressed to have razor-edges? I absolutely hate the crappy lace on the bodice, but otherwise ok. The skirt is the best part. I hope you don’t mind me taking our bow-craze a little public. I thought of you immediately when I saw this dress.
My gorgeous classes coordinator (she keeps my class lists and students and dates straight, God bless her) brought me a STACK of old Australian Home Journal magazines yesterday. I can have the ones from the 60’s and 70’s, but I have to give back the 40’s and 50’s after I’ve copied and plundered. They’re in pristine condition, and I’m having a great time reading the articles. I’ll scan some in when I’m too lazy to actually post. So much inspiration, and I’ve only just finished copying Lovely Friend’s Mother’s patterns.
