I have a new addition to my collection.
It's this little beauty and she's described as a Goddess Gown.
I found her while browsing through Etsy and a couple of websites that feature vintage patterns and she's due to arrive at Number 10 any day now.
And this beauty is from the 1950's. It's called the Lucy Housecoat. Don't you love designs that are given names?
What I've found really interesting though is the difference in the sizings from what we're used to today.
For instance, the "Lucy" is classified as a Size 14, to fit a bust measurement of 32 inches. I found a lot of designs like that, particularly from the 1950's.
I know I've been doing a lot of looking and choosing and buying lately but not much sewing....but that's going to change soon. I've had a few other things taking up my time like getting Number 3 finished.
Also... I always find getting out the pattern and the fabric and then constructing a garment is something you have to be in the right frame of mind for, otherwise things can turn pretty "ugly" pretty quickly.
That's my theory anyway, and I'm sticking to it.
