And then I got so excited I needed to change my pants

This past weekend I went to a local flea market. It's usually got the run of the mill flea market vendors; bulk food, t-shirts emblazoned with wolves howling at the moon or running with the wild free wind in their fur, belt buckles, wind chimes made out of hubcaps etc. However, this time there was a new vendor. She had baskets of vintage fabric, old books and....


a 1964 McCall's pattern book.


Yes, a whole section just for Muu Muus!



I have a rather large weakness for vintage ephemera, and my love of sewing and the artistry of patterns makes this a perfect piece for my collection.

I have no idea what I'm going to do with it besides just stare at it and smile and right now, that's enough.
