This advertisement for Butterick patterns was found in a 1939 magazine. I don't know what it is about me and shoes lately, but I WANT the shoes these gals have on in this first depiction! How completely fabulous are they?
This is a sweet dress with rick rack trim, isn't it?
And white rick rack on a brown sun dress - cute striped sandals, too:
Polka dots are always nice:
Fluttery sleeves to blow in the breeze - this one would make an nice Easter dress:
Smartly dressed ladies:
Looks like a madras plaid, and then more ruffle-like sleeves in blue:
Hmmm... these are play dresses? Not in my book:
Well, maybe in 1939.....
