This book was inside a large package of sewing items I purchased at a yard sale in Michigan a couple of summers ago. Since it was right around the time I was getting ready to launch Oliver + S, I never really had a chance to look at it.
I opened the book for the first time the other day, I can't remember why. But I'm freaking out over the photographs inside. Wow, I want to wear these clothes!
Especially this suit. I love the hat, too. Wish I had time to make something like this for my sister's wedding in September, but somehow I doubt it would look quite so stunning on me:
The best part of the book, however, are the scraps of paper and clippings inside it. Here is a newspaper ad I found inside it, along with a few bits I found in another book I have.
Isn't it fun to get little peaks at someone else's life?
