Its Christmas Time Again !

We say it each year...where did that year go & is it Christmas already?
Some patterns to inspire the Silly Season.

Always a good idea to wear the vintage apron as a fashion statement
and also to protect your glamour dress.

McCall 2073.
"Instant" Full skirted & very bright & pretty.

McCall 917.
1940's full apron with tie back.

McCall 1597.
This one would be right at home here in Australia.
Note the motif of the running rabbit with snags in it mouth.
I thought rabbits are vegetarians? maybe its a dog?
What to wear on Christmas day?
 Not to worry, simply select from here.
Stylish and full of sophisticated girly glamour.
Vogue 1575
Full skirted dress in long or short sleeve.
Optional back bow.

So Audrey Hepburn - even the model is an excellent look alike.
You can never go wrong with this dress.

Butterick 'Retro" '52 (4919).

Perfect in red !
