Take a look at these for example:
I love this coat pattern, and not because its the first thing I sewed
Look how happy this girl looks to be wearing this very pretty patterned dress!
So very elegant!
But it did take me a little while to realise that the yellow thing is a HAT
not an UMBRELLA... confusing considering the way she holds her hands...
Maybe thats one of the reasons I feel so compelled to collect them. The illustrations are beautiful, and can be very frivilous, much like a lot of the fashions of the 1950s really.
All this is leading somewhere I promise!
I was sitting on the lounge the other night and a thought popped into my head... When I photograph my creations I should pose the same way the girls are posing on the pattern envelopes!!! And maybe one day when I have a better photography setup (ie. a background) I can recreate the pattern envelope for my blog!
I was really excited about the creative challenge behind this, so stay tuned for some pretty poses in my creations next time I blog about a completed project... which will be very soon!
