Frilled frocks, boned bombshell corsets & everything in between. August 8, 2011 08:08
In the mood to shop? The correct answer is yes. Yes yes yes! Because we've been working hard at The Blue Gardenia. So hard. So very. Our fingers are raw from typing. (But worry not: We shed no blood on the precious patterns. Nary a drop.) Our eyes are blurry from scanning. Our minds are numb from counting and checking to make sure all the patterns are ready for your cutting table or your collection. Or both. So. Need I say that I hope you are pleased? That you'll find one, two, many things you cant live without?
I'll share just a few of my favorites from the 80-something patterns just added. And remember, if these don't tickle your fancies, there are many more. Many.
Simplicity 1937: Beautiful. Elegant. Unusual. So Jean Harlow in a ladylike moment. So very 1930s. And. Not one view, but two.
Butterick 4037: One of the most delicious blouse patterns of all time. It's strong. It's sophisticated. It's sassy. And so are you when you wear it. From the 1940s. Of course.
Modes Royale 1559: Oh oh oh. Oooooohhhhh. Talk about attitude. Talk about high style. This has it all. Overflowing, in fact. The dress is sleek. Chic. But the coat . . . wow. It makes my heart bop, bop, bop. And bop some more. Truly.
Vogue New York New York V2810: Now. This is a corset. Boned. Laced. The works. And two completely different skirts. (If you're doing Gertie's Bombshell Dress class at Craftsy, this would be a fabulous pattern choice.) It would.
And now, the fine print, the plug so shameless: You'll find these at The Blue Gardenia, where the patterns are counted, the jewelry is sparkling, and domestic shipping is free. We do ship abroad. We do. Happily. Priority or Express. Your choice. And we charge less than USPS charges us. And we take Amex, Discover, Mastercard, Paypal and Visa. We do so want to make it easy for you. We do. Absolutely.
Oh. One more thing: New patterns are located at the beginning of each category. To make it easier for our loyal patrons. We want you all to become loyal patrons, devoted to The Blue Gardenia. And you'll find additions in all decade categories, Accessories, Children, Lingerie. Isn't that wonderful? Yes. It is.
