Sometimes it's Hard to Let Go!

This is one of our favorite patterns over at Glamoursurf. You don't see many like this anymore in this condition. We're a bit saddened as it just sold. It's one of those beauties from the 1930's that just evokes a certain sense of beach glamour. The hat, the shoes and the glasses all complete a wonderful ensemble. I'm glad it's going to have a new home, I'm just sorry to see it go.

Vintage 30's Butterick 6586 Women's Beach Outfit Wrap Skirt Halter and Shorts Pattern sz 14 B32 Unprinted. Beach outfit for women and misses including a wrap around skirt, A halter and shorts made in two styles. Pattern is complete and unprinted.

This is another of our swimsuit pattern favorites, but this one just sits at my desk and I look at it everyday. It's one that I just can't bear to part with. The pattern is from Advance from the 1940's. I just love the high empire style waist and the gathering on the sides of the shorts. And a halter to boot!

I'm not sure if it's harder to let go of something you just admire or if it's harder to grieve about the one that got away.
