November 10, 1949: The Daily Pattern

 Loving this dress.  The neckline is a little close but I love the check and black cording.  Such a nice dress.
I have to admit that I am not completely in love with this.  It looks like a whole lot of work for something that is going to be in a constant state of needing to be washed.


November 7, 1949 - Sewing Day

In preparation of the official turnover into 1950 I have been thinking, of course, a lot about wardrobe, or should I say my lack there of so today is going to be spent sewing.  I know that right off the bat I am going to make two new skirts.  One of them will be of a material that I bought last year and it is a lovely leaf pattern.  Something I got from joann fabric when it was on sale last december or so.  I also just mail ordered 4 new skirt fabrics that are warmer for the winter weather.  Now I don't know if snuggle flannel is very authentic but in these Pennsylvania winters it will keep me from having to wear pants which is much more non-authentic.

Here are the ones that I ordered today.  The first three are the snuggle flannel and the fourth is just a plain cotton that I got specifically for thanksgiving day.

Now I absolutely love the Thanksgiving one because even though it is new, it has a wonderfully vintage feeling, you could just see someone from the fifties wearing a skirt or an apron made out of this beauty.  I think that I am more excited by that one than any of them.
Well it's nearly 8:00 and I have to start getting my housework done for the day.  Off I go to the kitchen yonder.

Till Later!


November 5, 1949 - The Daily Pattern

 I love this dress, I think that it was a beautiful dress, can you imagine this dress made in a maroon velveteen with gold or brass buttons or even navy with pearl buttons.  somewhat simple but a little bit of style.
This is for a pretty little knitting pattern.  To go on top of a table.

I had planned on doing some sewing today but I had such a sore back when I got finished with my housework because I had to tend to the yard and wash out the tub so I have to admit that I didn't get nearly as much done as I'd liked to have.
I've been spending very little time on the computer these days.  I have been trying very hard to stay in "my time".  This is much easier to do when I am not faced with the internet and inundated by current technology of all sorts.

Till Later!
