NOW FOR THE TRUE VINTAGE LATE SUMMER PARTY DRESSES AND FALL FROCKS TO HAND-KNIT

IMG_1028 IMG_1043From the early 1960’s, frocks just perfect for weddings, parties or just being pretty.  Like my others, these patterns come from a McCalls Needlework Magazine of that era.

IMG_1025This was the type of project our grandmothers might have busied themselves with over the  early winter months.  I know that my friend who gave me these did!

Women who loved to knit, crochet and sew looked forward to the new patterns just like  women look forward to fashion magazines and runway shows now.

Simple pleasures, but stunningly pretty and very true vintage . . . .
