High Fashion - Miniaturized
You may recall my love of this late sixties silhouette? Well...
As I've said before, if it's truly gorgeous, it stays gorgeous. The passing of forty years makes not a whit of difference. This pattern is from a 1967 McCall's Needlework & Crafts. I have several issues and love them because the doll clothes patterns are faithful miniatures of the fashion of the day and that fashion was simply, stunning. I would wear this jacket. Well, maybe not in August, but you get the idea.
Sometimes i wonder about my sanity when making thing like this. Especially at times like Friday night when I was struggling to set in the teeny tiny sleeves. Then, once it's done, it's worth it. Making pretty little things just gives me a dose of happy. Who cares that my downstairs neighbour looked at me sideways during this morning's photo shoot on the lawn?
