Today’s Pattern Story

by Erin on September 11, 2013



Red: I’m going to win this Resolute Courageous Stare-Off if it is the last thing I do. I have purpose! I have wistful yet restrained yearning! I have a jaunty angle to my neck facings! I have dark, resolute gloves and a sensible yet stylish handbag, which almost certain includes war bonds! The trophy (and Captain Harding) is mine!

Green: I really wish I’d worn my glasses today. I can’t see a darn thing.

Now I want the pattern just to draw glasses on the chick in green.

That really is a cute dress.

I Love the dress and I have an extra pair of glasses I could loan Green…you know like those extra reading glasses anyone can use. Loved the Dress a Day Series…thanks so much for an enjoyable view of your collection! -r-

The 100 + dresses postings were great! I did miss the pattern write ups. I enjoyed the book when’s the next one?

Your pattern stories are my #1 favorite blog feature (not just here, anywhere on the ‘net), period.

That is such a pretty pattern. Looks just like something my mother would have worn when she was a young mother. And her waist was so teeny tiny! And I know I remember playing with that handbag! Either I had a toy one like it or played my mom’s old one.

Always beautifully observed, Erin. Thanks for that dose of smile.
I love the bold diagonal use of check on Miss Green. Now, what’s with the very tiny feet? Compare with the size of the hands.

I love it… are these a regular feature? I’d love it if they were!

Hi, Erin – this is the last post I’m able to view. Is it me/my browser, or are you taking a blog-break? Thanks, TeaGirl

Reminds me of a photo of my mother with a teeny waist. I like the patterns of those days. They are simple, clean, no frills but very feminine.

A book of pattern stories would be fun!
