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!
