I just thought I'd share a bit of the newest jewel in my collection, from the December 1950 Modes et Travaux Magazine.
I've been busy working on a custom dress for a client (Yay, I have clients now!) so most of my creative juices have gone towards making that project perfect. That, and before the fabric arrived to work on the aforementioned, I was putting the finishing touches on my overalls from Anne Adams 4536. More to come on that later when I can wrangle my photographer (husband) to lend his assistance.
Most of this magazine is about chistmas gifts, perfume, and sewing and knitting projects. In French. Heaven.
It even came with a needlepoint transfer to help one accomplish the following:
And of course the latest fashion news about jewels sewn on to ones cardigans for ornament.
Lovely, lovely French culture.
If you haven't already, don't forget to check out the pattern and fabric giveaway that ends this Saturday!
Have a happy Thursday.
Ooh, that pink dress! I swooned!ReplyDelete
Good lord I am speechless at the needlepoint! Wouldn't mind having that but somehow very much doubt my ability to actually reproduce anything even slightly resembling. :)ReplyDelete
