When I mentioned that I wanted to try to make a new wintercoat for C this fall by myself, my mother-in-law was thrilled to say she had saved all her pattern magazines from the '70 till '90's. The ones from the '70's are my favorite; I'm very delighted I found several patterns I want to make instantly. But with a 'now' fabric (no corduroy or poly-something). The dresses on the first picture I remember very well, my mother made one of those for me as well. Cute. Then.
