Thrift Stop - MadMen Women

So I found some vintage sewing patterns...and they came home with me because I'm a sucker for the cover art and always have been.  (If you were a midcentury teen girl in America you might remember the covers of all our novels had similar-style illustrations.)

Anywho, here's just a couple of the good ones:




1950s Girls' Coat in Two Lengths

Simplicity 4418


1960 Misses' and Junior Dress with Slim or Full Skirt and Dickey

McCall's 5737


1960s Misses' One-Piece Dress, Jacket and Belt

Simplicity 3842


1967 Misses' One-Piece Dress (princess line with bias roll collar)

Simplicity 7099




Did you see it?  




Wait...are you a Mad Men fan?




Because...






It's Joan Holloway!





And Betty Draper! (After all, she was a model...)





What do you think?  




Did it blow your mind?  




I've got many more Joan examples people!

    (She's on tons of them!!)


Wanna see?
