A couple of weekends ago, I decided to play hooky, ditch all the Saturday chores and visit a new antique store! It was great fun! This is one of the goodies I picked up. The price was fabulous, I snatched it up so quick I didn't even look at it properly. Isn't it smashing? So very Loretta Young/ Myrna Loy looking. It fascinates me there is no buttons, just the neck scarf to keep it closed.
Sometimes the back of a pattern is just as interesting as the front. It looks like a simple coat to make. But it packs such style!
When I peeked inside at the pattern pieces, this fell out!! Isn't that funny! It is so bright and colorful. If you look very closely, there are the words "free sample" stamped across it. (It is a little hard to decipher at first) I wonder how it ended up in a sewing pattern? Was it used to hold buttons? Bits of fabric for possible choices? Matching thread??
