Unfortunately, my husband's nanny passed away New Year's of 2009. We have spent some time there going through her things and now her house has a sale contract on it. When we were going through her attic, we found about 60-80 patterns from the 1940's-1970's. I have had so much fun going through them. I found a cute six panel skirt with an elastic waist that I have made several times now. I did have one problem with my first one. I made it for my twelve year old and she loves that it twirls when she spins (she is very girly). She was wearing it to church on a Wednesday night and all of a sudden the seam just started to bust open. I thought maybe she pulled it on something, but I realized that it was the use of rayon thread in a cotton jersey garment! I love shiny rayon thread almost as much as I love fabric. It does not hold up well in a knit garment. NOTE TO SELF! Oh well, we have repaired and since then sewn some more of these skirts. I just love vintage and retro and homemade!
