Gotta love the pose on that fugly blue and white number. The pant and makeup compliment the sweater so well..... ha ha ha

I've got some of that Pingouin I inherited from my grandmother - not sure what to do with it yet, it's been marinating in my stash for years now.


I really like the blue v-neck with bobbles. Quite timeless, as you point out. I wonder what the prevailing wisdom for models was at the time, regarding the "right" facial expression for such a shoot.


They should have asked that gorgeous Ei to model it. It is amazing on her. Some of those vintage patterns are great. That other one is pretty bad though...*shudder*


Those photos made me laugh. I like the patterns, but the model's all look as though they are suffering from migraines!


I like the blue cardigan. The saddest thing about these old patterns is the sizing, such as the largest size fitting a 36-inch bust. Yeah, right. I haven't worn a size 10 since I was 10.


I agree with Jennifer, they all look in pain! But the sweaters are cute, except "that one" with the white chest area and bobbles... haha!
