Boho Faux Fur Shawl to keep you warm this winter

 I know that I blogged this luscious shawl when I had it listed, but it's been a couple of years ago and I can't find it now.  Soooooooo  I really think it bears repeating, since I have found the crochet pattern to make this lovely.  That was the question I received numerous times while I had it listed, and before it went to a new and loving home.

Shaggy Faux Fur Shawl to Crochet

As you can see, the one I had wasn't quite as shaggy and fluffy as the one in the photo, but that is due to the type yarn that was used.  I do believe that the maker can do what they wish and have it extremely full or less so.

1971 Revisited The Hippie Peasant Dress

When I found this pattern in my stash the other day it brought back so many memories......   The summer and fall of 1971.  I had this dress and wore it to death....literally, until it was a rag.  

It was so comfortable and appropriate to wear anywhere at anytime of the day.

This was another favorite of mine that year.  Both the long and short version.  Perfect as a cover up for the pool or beach or to wear anywhere.

Simplicity 9415 Super Jiffy Wrap Dress

As a matter of fact I think I just might need to make both of these to wear next summer.  Think I can pull it off again?  LOL

Everything Old is New Again! Especially in the World of Vintage Fashion

When you handle as many Vintage patterns as I do in a weeks time, you start to see the same concepts over and over and over again.  But seldom do you actually have such an example of the 25 year rule as I ran across this week.  Listed now are these three Bib Overall Shorts patterns from 3 very distinctive Vintage Eras.  Rosie the Riveter from 1946, Hanna the Hippie from 1974, and the latest in 1996.  Who knows what version of this comfortable attire will show up in 2021?  Just hope I'm around to see it.
