Catalog Sunday

This Sunday I'm feeling pretty 30s. This is a pattern catalog from the lovely mail order company, Marian Martin. There is no date on the catalog, which is a tad oversized, but judging by the styles, I'd gestimate from 1932-1933.

Enjoy!

  1. That first dress with the scalloped detail is so gorgeous! I also love that last image with all those green, mint and turquoise tones together - wouldn't have thought of green and turquoise together but now I'm thinking it's a great combination for a two-tone top or dress!

  2. Boy, I'd love to make one of each! That would be an amazing wardrobe. We can dream, I guess.

  6. Wouldn't it be wonderful to go into a shop and be able to buy these, and not some ghastly modernised version either, no doubt cut to just below one's behind, but the real thing. Dream on!
