Modes et Travaux, June 1953

As promised, the other one of these recent buys. This edition comes from June 1953, and is packed with beautiful beach wear, sun dresses and children's play clothes. Is there still time to sew up a couple of copycat items while the weather lasts?

Changing an outfit with a bolero or overskirt:

Oh how I love the turquoise striped dress. Yes, I'm still drooling over that colour, particularly when striped with white!

These embroidery designs are something I will definitely use at some point, as they are included on the transfer sheet. I love the bows and the little kites.


  1. I absolutely love this time-period! Thanks so much for sharing your wonderful purchases! Photo #7 is my favorite - I love all those dresses. =)
