Full Circle - Another Wrap Skirt


I can't seem to get too enthused about anything than work and health, both mine and others these days. But I found this cute little circle wrap skirt and have to share it with you. It comes from Burda Style online magazine who offer both free and low cost patterns.



I bought Burda pattern magazines for years during the 1970s -1990s. Their founder had the brilliant idea of including a huge pattern sheet with outlines for all the fashions featured, a direct influence from the Petersons and Godeys Ladies Books of the 1800s. She included patterns for women, children, men and the home much as the antique magazines offered women a variety of amusements, recipies, art, stories, music and fashion of the day.

I own a number of the antiques, bound and lovingly saved for me to buy them over 100 plus years later. I still have my old Burda pattern books. I hope you'll introduce yourself to Burda. Go explore how economically things were done!

Dear "Maria",

I am not a forum or billboard for penis swapping or 1-800-babes. If there were some way to delete the comment, I would.

If you come here again, I'll put a root on your arse so you won't be able to pee, let alone solicit sex to my people.

Regards

Red Sonya! Thanks for the backup, Beauty! I just hate being captive to these. Just changed my comments rating to approval to publish. Didn't want to do that, but felt there was no choice.
