The world is your …garage sale?

I’ll be honest it still amazes me that in 2012, I can look at an antique fashion store flyer, go on to the internet and with a little luck, find one of the advertised dress patterns. Without the internet, patterns from the past would be difficult, if not impossible to find.

Store fashion flyer, detail - 1952

VOGUE 7702 is such a dress… I love love love the neckline… and I found the pattern uncut and in factory folds, online, within less than half an hour… The power of the internet, which we have come to take for granted, still astounds me!! It might otherwise languished unloved in a drawer in someones grandmother’s house for decades longer…

Hello... from 1952!... 60 years old and still pretty!
