The rodeo is just around the corner. This is the jacket to wear.


Really. You are not into the cowboy thing. You're not. But. The rodeo is coming up,  and you've promised your BFF you'll go. Calf roping. Bull riding. Barrel racing. Ugh. But you promised. You did. And you deserve a treat for being such a good friend and sweating in the hot summer sun and smelling the hay and cow patties. Did you say ugh? Yes. You did. Cowboys in hats and pointy-toed boots are so not your thing. You'll take a city slicker any day of the week. So. So what will your present to your loyal self be? Because you deserve one. You do. Absolutely. What? You'll treat yourself to McCall's 1399, copyright 1949. It's a splurge. Yes indeedy. But you're worth every cent. You are.

The details: Bust 30-32. Still in factory folds with transfer. Minty mint. $100. You love it. You do.

And you can find this rare and wonderful pattern at The Blue Gardenia, where the patterns are counted, the jewelry is sparkling, and domestic shipping is free. (And, yes, we happily ship abroad for a fee ? just what the post office charges, in fact.) So rush on over. Do. Snap this one up. Now.
