My co-parent's girlfriend gave me a bunch of Workbasket magazines from the 1960s for my birthday this year. The needlework projects are pretty cool, but it was the mail-order pattern pictures that ended up really inspiring me. The lines are simple, but feminine. I'm not a big fan of the hippy 60s and 70s, but I am really fond of the fashions left over from the 50s. I'm pretty sure I am going to use these dresses as inspiration for my pattern-drafting adventures this summer.
