Today’s Pattern Story (and Sale): Vogue 2051

by Erin on March 18, 2011


The wireless lapel mike had a short in it, so Agent Gladiolus always had to hold it at an unnatural angle to make her report. Good thing Agent Daffodil's hair served as a makeshift antenna.

You can find this pattern here, along with some grab-bag offers …

Note that Yellow Dress has her alternate antenna on her shoes. Much more Fashion Forward that trying to hide it under a hat several sizes too small for ones hairdo.

I can’t figure out if Agent Daffodil is wearing a scarf, or 10 strands of pearls. This dress should look better than it does. The “accent” of the bold belt is kind of abrupt, and I hate those stiff fabrics that stand up on their own. But I like where the dress is GOING… (this is Cookie, BTW, signing in with FaceBook in the hopes of having an avatar appear.)

HA! I had my hair styled like Agent Daffodil in college, 2002-2003.
