Christmas 1947

Look at my newest vintage find! My sister Becky sent it to me. Aren't sisters the best! But I did make her an apron :) This is a McCalls pattern booklet for December 1947. And guess what?! There is an apron pattern in it! I couldn't resist sharing a few pages with you. They are so cute!

I love the dress on the right! So many lovely details.
Aren't they elegant?
The aprons!! On the right: "Gals will simply love a romantic orange blossom apron. Use rick-rack braid for blossoms. Sew to appliqued orange with French knots." On the left: "Delight the gals on your list with a pert "Walking the Dogs" apron!" I think I am going to have to make these. Flowers made with rick-rack, too fun!

Love the pajamas and robes!

I just had to post this one. The hats are crazy! I have never seen anything like them before.
