It is about this time of year that the weather rather cruelly decides to tease us with a bit of Spring weather, only to startle us back into Winter with the return of the cold/rain.
The only bonus is that things begin to bloom, which is rather lovely (except for the allergy issue). But is there really anything more lovely than a blooming Magnolia tree with a few petals scattered underneath?
Once I get a taste of the beautiful weather that is to come, I want to ditch all of the winter-wear and turn to pastels and lightweight fabrics, even if it does get rather chilly after the sun goes down.
With all of the recent Vintage Vogue Reproduction discussions, I decided to pull one of my old outfits out of the closet. And it is always fun to dissect previous projects and think of all of the things that I would do differently.
This pattern reminds me very much of the new Vogue 8875, updated for the year 1955.
Now, if only Spring would show up . . .
