    Wish I had the sewing know-how to make a dress! Check out the sizing from back in the day

    What a smart and pretty summer outfit. I loved how the patterns had all sorts of details you could select to customize your dress to your needs. On the front, I can see the numbers 1 & 2 under the hem to show such an option. I also like the polka dots look. Really fresh and fun!

    Notice the size Today that would probably be a size 6!

    I love old sewing patterns! I made one of the reproduction original designs and it was one of the hardest things I’he ever sewn but turned out so nice!

    I saw this pattern and it reminded me that for years I’ve complained to myself of the fashion industry’s subtle size changes over the year to keep us thinking that we aren’t fat and to keep us buying new, “smaller” clothes. I was a size 14 in high school and college. Now at 62 I’m a size 10 with 4 extra inches on my top and bottom. Then add the stretch component and….. Wake up girls. To be real is to wear the real size!

  6. and take note that the hips were bigger than the bust, now thats more realistic isn’t it?
