Shameless plug: Pucci culottes, sassy shorts, bias slips, and more.

It's true: We've been lazy lately. So very. But we finally took a break from eating chile cream chocolates and reading Ruth Rendell novels, and got together an update. Hope you love it. Hope, in fact, you just can't resist these lovelies. A few favorites (and there are many more!):

Vogue 9419
, a luscious bias slip from 1943.

New York 1387
, sassy pleated shorts with three blouse options and an overskirt for those demure moments, also from the 1940s.

Advance Import 76
, figure-revealing jacket worthy of those days when you simply must channel Kim Novak.

Vogue Couturier Design 2249
, the perfect culottes for those summer patio parties, courtesy of Pucci. Of course.

And, yes, these fabulous patterns ? as well as many other new vintage additions ?  are available at The Blue Gardenia, where the patterns are counted, the jewelry is sparkling and domestic shipping is free. (We happily ship abroad, for less than the cost USPS charges us.) And do recall: We put new patterns at the start of each category. Enjoy!
