  1. Thank you for sharing this. I love looking at vintage catalogs and imagining all those pretty clothes in my closet. It's to bad they don't create such marvelous frocks anymore.

  2. Great stuff - I especially love the Kerrybrooke page, I want that playsuit!

    But the Sea-Ho swimsuits just about killed me.

  3. Oh those sailor style trousers! I'm dying! I wish mom had bought patterns like those.
