This is from a Modess ad in Life Magazine, February 1951. The often featured fashion in their ads, but this jacket is pretty terrific and I wonder if it was ever a real thing. And don't miss the text...the box was "so cleverly formed that, when wrapped, it looks like one of a dozen purchases...never like a napkin box." So what did a napkin box look like before?
Welcome! I have this blog to share the treasures I find related to vintage sewing, and vintage fashion with occasional detours into whatever crosses my path. Everything I post is from some actual item I found. If you'd like to buy something you see contact me.
I sell sewing patterns for a living, you'll see the link below. Come on by!
