Found inside a pattern today - Cindy writes to Mom.

I love the things I find inside's a letter from Cindy asking her Mom to sew some shifts for her. It's undated, but she included $4.00 to cover the making of 3 shifts, fabric, notions and shipping!
I hope she got nice decals for the crib.

Here is the pattern she sent to her Mom...pretty cute!

Glamour Magazine - 1943 - Be Bright, Be Cool, Be Nifty!

The next treasure is Glamour Magazine from April, 1943. There are lots of suits ( don't miss the Claire McCardell's shown in blue) and lot's of nifty details on the dresses. Have fun!

COVER: The flattering fedora-the hat you'll see on nine heads out of ten this Spring. Because it's a spruce hat for a spruce hairdo, and it makes the simplest suit more exciting. The smartest ones are doll-size, as this of white pique with a green hand. $5, Best. Gloves by Wear-Right. Make-up and lipstick are Lentheric's "Wonderful." Photograph by Lemus.
