thrifty thursday

It's been a few weeks since I've had time to run to the local thrift shops, but it was worth the wait for my vintage pattern collection -
Anyone want to look like a Pilgrim woman? Me neither. I love the Elizabeth Taylor look-a-like though.

Why don't I have enough closet space to store coats that match every outfit I own?

I remember these Simplicity patterns from many years ago when my great aunt used to come each year from NY to Positano (where she was born) for the summer and she would come to my home and sew. Dresses, skirts, tops ... I have so many fond memories from just seeing these.
If you go to my mom's you'll still find some old thread!
