Today's Pattern Story: Vogue 6253

Vogue 6253


Salt: No, you have to maintain an air of mystery, like this. Turn your head, just until you can see your right shoulder blade, or your neck cramps, whichever comes first.

Pepper: I prefer to hypnotize with my direct stare. Also, my brooch spins and strobes.

Salt: Well, once they’re hypnotized, will you ask them where Marie is? I need her help to unsnap the lower two carapaces so I can sit down.

Pepper: You and me both, sugar.

Salt: It’s Salt.

(if you NEED this pattern, and have the fiberglass-casting capability to make those carapaces, it’s for sale on Etsy from seller Fancywork)

  1. Oh! Is this a dress or a top and skirt? Poor Salt and Pepper, doomed to never, ever sit down and crease the fabric thus spoiling those divine lines….


  2. Just stumbled upon your blog and love it. I ordered your book, The Secret Lives of Dresses and can’t wait to read it. I am an encaustic artist and have a series going called Dresscapades – about the night time romps of dresses when they escape their hangers. So its also about the secret lives of dresses. Funny!
