I'm selling more vintage patterns on Ebay- there are some really great ones this time! For some reason they aren't all showing up if you search my name on there, but you can see them all here.

I'm more than a little obsessed with this fashion spread I found on Ethical Style's blog- it's from the November 15, 1966 Vogue and it is entitled "Looks Men Like At Home." This is basically my dream of how I want to dress all the time- my grandmother always wore lounging suits of silk and other fabrics around the house, and in all of her photos from then she looks amazing.
My favourite of these looks is #4, in the second spread- "A man's idea of a wonderful sport- the player in the white mink tennis dress, with legs like a maharani's in crushed silk tights striped to the toes... great form for the games people play at home. The dress- tiny bodice and a frisk of pleats zipped together at the waist, of "Jasmine," Emba white mink." Where can I find a white mink tennis dress?!? How gorgeous!

Pale grey crepe dress by Madeleine Vionnet, Summer 1938.
This has to be one of the most beautiful dresses ever- a Vionnet evening gown I found over at Couture Allure. Check out her blog for other great vintage pieces.
