I've Been Gifted
Thank you Closet Queen! I helped her reduce her clutter and I welcome it!
I met Deidre Spaan, professional organizer at a Cherry Pie event last week. She saw my outfit and we got started talking. She told me it reminded her of the styles she wore int he 60s and does she have some patterns I might be interested in!
I told her I appreciate the vintage patterns because back then, they produced a style for simple style, not to cut corners in cost and to gouge potential buyers.
Dart placements are in unusual places, waistlines are in different places, shoe and hair styles are fascinating to watch from year to year and the most interesting thing was the measurements for a size 14, in the 60s, were:
Bust=34" Waist=26" Hip=36"
Thank you Deidre Spaan for sharing your stories, your memories and your mum and your patterns with me. They are in good hands.
