The first day of 2012… and the heat in Canberra today was oppressive, however we were treated to a thunderstorm in the evening. These are the sorts of Summer days I remember growing up here, wonderful to sit out on a deck drinking wine and watching the stormy weather, or in our case, making the most of the cool breeze in an attempt to cool the house down.
But on with todays pattern… Whilst there are three skirt variations included in McCalls 3482 (early 1950s) I think the mermaid skirt variation is just gorgeous… I gave this pattern to my best friend for Christmas (but I also have the pattern in my collection). This looks dressy in brocade but could also be feminine an professional in pinstripe suiting?
Ah, 1950s fashion… gotta love it!
