I found a gem to add to my pattern collection this week. It may be my rarest pattern yet! For a few years in the mid to late 1920s, McCall made patterns with distinctive covers. They had photos of the garments on models: they must have hand-colored and edited these photos and they are quite beautiful. The patterns just so happen to be pretty amazing, too!
I just love everything about this: the pink gingham with white, the embroidered flowers, the collar and cuffs, and the precious little model. This is one I would like to make someday!
I have the pink and turquoise overalls cut out and I'm hoping to finish the embroidery tomorrow! Are you ready for Thanksgiving yet? I am getting off easy this year- going to my parents' house! Yahoo- easy peasy and bound to be a delicious feast made by my MOM!
