Look what I got!

1939 pattern


1935-36 (?)


I went to a vintage sale in San Francisco a couple of weeks ago.  I picked up these 4 patterns and was really lucky to get them for about $7.00 a piece.  I love the late 30's.  I prefer late 30's and late 40's styles actually.  I think they look better on my petite/short figure.  Anyway, I hope to have fun with these for future Art Deco events. 

Whoa! Is it April already?

Dear readers, I have been terribly neglectful!  In a nutshell I have been consumed by my job and my energy at home has been focused on just making ends meet.  So, with that said, I have not been very focused on my blog and must apologize to you all.

I believe that since I last posted, I had started an 18th century corset.  Well it is all cut out and now in a project box, waiting.  The corded petticoat that I started last fall is also on hold.  The problem is I do not have a deadline (an event to work towards) and so there is a lot of start and stop, start again and stop again.  Will these two projects become like the other UFO's (unfinished objects)?  I hope not.  In any case, I am in the process of working on a late 1930's evening gown for the Art Deco Society's annual Preservation Ball.  Once I get that done, I plan on getting back to the corset and then the petticoat. 

This is short and sweet and with out pictures as I just wanted to post so you wouldn't think I had fallen off the horizon.  I will get something posted weekly from now on.  I am determined!
