Watch List: Vintage Patterns

This week I decided to watch patterns that have something surprising about them.
The first one, McCall's 3528 is quite adorable and it has directions for making the matching parasol. How wonderful!


This second pattern is dated wrong by the seller, it is actually 1937 or 39, and a great halter bathing suit/playsuit, but do you see that cape? (and can I just say, who does not want a cape to wear with their swimming suit?) You can wear as is, OR, wait for it....a skirt! Clever.

These are both amazing! I love the cape as a skirt and how the heck do you make your own parasol that would seem tough but I want to make one!
