Yes. We did it. We added some fabulous vintage patterns. Very high in the style department. Ever so chichi. Truly. I do not exaggerate. A few of my very own favorites, among the many:

Vogue Couturier Design 868. Unique details. Look at the bodice fold. Peer at the skirt. Are you panting? I am. Yes indeed. Oh, yes. Copyright 1955. Must not let such an important detail elude me.

And then there's Vogue 6150 from the 1940s. So film noir goddess. 1940s_vogue_evening 1950s_Vogue_650 Elegant. Unusual lines. So very much of the decade. So very very. You can make it for evening. You can make it for day. Just make it. You can't go wrong with this spectacular style. It's one of my all-time favorites. It is. Absolutely.

And what about Vogue Couturier Design 652? Talk about unusual lines. It's got 'em. And it's asymmetrical. And it's bee-yoo-tee-ful. It's got it all going on. It has. It's  got it backward. Forward. Up. Down. Copyright 1952. Doncha love it? Doncha? Doncha. I do. I do. I do. 

And all of these patterns — each and everyone — is available at The Blue Gardenia, where the patterns are counted, the jewelry is sparkling, and domestic shipping is free. (And, yes, we happily ship abroad — Global Priority or Express — for a fee. Less, by the way, than USPS charges us.) So rush on over. Buy a pattern or two or ten or 20. You'll be ever so glad you did.
