Ahoy, matey, I’ll have the French toast…

My friend, Michelle, recently sent me some deliciously awful patterns from yesteryear.
It always tickles and delights me to know that when my friends see terrible sewing patterns, they immediately think of me.

This week, we’ll be celebrating the treasures she sent me.

Petticoat not included? Well, then forget the whole thing!

I mean honestly, I get that Laura Ashley was the 80’s answer to the conservative preppy look, but what sensible woman genuinely wanted to dress
like an Amish sailor going to brunch?

  1. One of the things that made these styles so attractive was the layers of quality cotton. They felt wonderful. Crisp and cool. One can’t even find the kind of cotton we enjoyed in the eighties now.
