This is a mail order pattern from the LA Times.
2 years minus only about 1 Month, I think.
My first pattern with no seam lines or printing on the pieces.
And it was mailed in 1952 to Miss Bonnie Lawrence.
But it doesn't look like she ever made it.
Finally finished... Ta Daaaah!
New skill: Button loops!
Sooo Happy, in fact, that I made it a necklace, out of vintage bingo pieces and milagros.
I bought this fabric from my friend Amber (aka Maple Syrup) and I think these two boys look like her two boys.. at least a little.
But these guys would be older than me these days.
This NVW project is dedicated to her.
I got the buckle form the Addison Studio sale that I attended with my lovely sister...
Perfect, don't you think?
Well, That's all until Monday!
Thanks to Miss Retro Modern for the backgrounds for this shoot!
