TRUE VINTAGE BOLEROS, CAPES, SHRUGS AND SHAWLS FROM McCALL’S

IMG_1480With all the graduation parties going on and the weddings coming up, we’re sure to need little cover-ups like these for the cool nights.  Despite the hot days in some places, it’s still Spring!

Well-dressed ladies in 1956 loved pretty “wraps” to wear over their dressy finery at times when a jacket or coat just wouldn’t do.  What could better than to pick the perfect style, material and color for your own custom-made accessory?

Skilled needle-workers could whip up one of these in no time.  Inspired? . . . . . .

  2. You’d think that having slimmed down from 325 lbs to 210 lbs I should want to show off my body, but no. I look at my flabby arms (bingo wings, great sheets of fat) and say “well nobody’s gonna see these things” and so if I wear a sleeveless top/dress, I throw something, ANYTHING over it, even when it’s 90 degrees & 400% humidity. I own crocheted short-sleeved little shrugs, kimono jackets, blazers, pashminas. I’d kill for a fur bolero.
