You won't say ho-hum about these patterns. You won't. July 30, 2012 01:18 2 Comments

It's hot outside. Sweltering. This is no time to be outdoors! So. Stay inside and enjoy your comfy refrigerated air while shopping The Blue Gardenia's latest update. A few of my favorites just added:

Want a multi-style pattern that packs a wallop? You do, don't you? Advance 6380 fits that bill. Absolutely. The short-sleeved view is cool for now. I see it in broadcloth. And View 1, with the sensational, wide pointed collar and pleated, ruffled sleeves, will stop all the cars on the avenue. So beautiful and so different. I love it.

I'm also smitten with Vogue 6970. (You've noticed I have a fondness for blouses, I'm sure.) Gently draped kimono sleeves, luscious collar — and it's "Easy-to-Make." How peachy is that?

August is just around the corner, so it's time to think of that fall and winter suit and coat. Two suggestions: Vogue Paris Original 1617 by Balmain. Beautiful seam details.

Vogue Paris Original 1740
is classic, gorgeous, so Audrey Hepburn. The blouse is really special. You'll want to check out the detail images of these two. The drawings show so much more. Yes indeed.

And, yep, these smashing vintage patterns can be yours. Just drop by The Blue Gardenia, where the patterns are counted, the jewelry is sparkling, and domestic shipping is free. (And, yes, we ship abroad with pleasure for a shipping fee — less than what the post office charges us, in fact.) So drop by. Do. You'll be delighted you did. Truly.
