2015 has not been my year!

2015 has just been horrid. In January I separated from my husband of 10 years. In February my 16 year old dog died. IN March I moved in with my current roommate. In May I met a man named Chris that I dated for three months. And now in August, I am preparing to move to Colorado on October 1. Sewing has been put on the back burner, unfortunately.

But, I did just buy myself 6 patterns in the McCall' sale:

In Colorado I plan to live by myself and i also plan to sew up a storm. Of course, this probably will not happen until 2016 -- but I am ok to wait until then. I can't wait to move away from depressing Philadelphia.

  5. Oh dear, I wish you all the best of luck for your move and that it will be the change you need to make you feel better.
    2015 has been a horrible year for me, too. Let's just tick it off and start 2016 all new :-)

  6. Holy moly, what an "interesting" year! All the best wishes in the world to you, especially in your new adventure, move, and life transformation! :) You've proven to be a strong woman after all these tests of your mettle, you should feel proud of yourself. Hold your head high, and relax and enjoy the single life for a bit...

    Drat, I missed the pattern featured in pic # 5 of your new collection during the McCall pattern sale! *lol*

Sailor/Nautical Chic!

1915:

1915 was a very pivotal year for fashion. It was the year restrictive Victorian styles began to give way to what would evolve into breezy 1920s styles. This is the earliest nautical styled dress I've seen in the Sears catalogs.

1916:

1921:

Nautical-style Middie blouses were popular throughout the Great War and early 1920s.

1922:

1924:

1924 is the last time nautical-styled clothing appears in the Sears catalogs for several years. Deco-styled "flapper" dresses will dominate. Perhaps they were "over" the Great War and didn't want to dwell on it...;)

1931:

Sailor girls begin to show up again in 1931. The heyday of nautical travel!

After 1941, sailor influences pretty much disappear from fashion.

40 Years of Fashion Evolution Before Your Very Eyes

Here it is -- the 40 most important years in fashion from the pages of Sears catalogs. This is what everyday people would have worn. Let's start in 1910. It was still practically Victorian times in 1910, but BIG changes were about to come and they haven't stopped to the current day. But we're going to stop in 1950 for the sake of my blog and my tastes.

Fashion from every year starting in 1910 and ending in 1950. Enjoy.
