Have You Got The Notion...

"Our love is like a ship on the ocean;
We've been sailing with a cargo full of love and devotion."



Of course that Hues Corporation's song had nothing to do with vintage clothing or vintage patterns, but it was a catchy tune, they wore some cool duds, and it comes to mind when I think of sewing patterns. Lora is right. I am a little strange. So with that unusual opening let's turn to vintage patterns once again!

From Sew Retro Vintage Patterns at Main Street Patterns we find this lovely Vintage 60s Sewing Pattern Jackie O Coat with Scarf B32 5148. The back of the envelope says, in part: Coat has high nickline, long raglan sleeves and front button closing. There are welt pockets on each side of center front. V.1 neckline is finished with a collar and may be worn with top button opened to form notch-type collar. V.2 is collarless and features a straight scarf. (click the picture to view the listing)

Add a beard and that guy on the right could have been me in 1971! I had pants just like that. And I even wore deck shoes. ::sigh::
