We've been working so hard. Counting. Checking. Selecting only the best patterns for you, dear ones. I love them all, of course. But Pictorial 8114 is a favorite. Racy, peekaboo front, tied with little bows. So special, doncha think?

 


 

Unique and captivating collar and princess seams.

I actually have Butterick 8573, circa 1950s, in my size. I love this style. It's on my make list. Fetching, yes?

Another one in my collection. I love it when I come across multiples. McCall 6948 is luscious, from the broad shoulders to the draped peplum to the cutouts. Can you resist?

 


 

Love the sleeves. Love the neckline. Love the unpressed inverted pleats. I love Vogue 7139. Period.


Comfy. Pretty. Simple.

I am also mighty sweet on Pictorial 6884. Two views. I love the View 1 the most, though. That neckline! And we have this one in two sizes.

 

Huge update, this. So drop by The Blue Gardenia and fill up your cart! And yes, we merrily ship abroad.
