Prominent Designer Series: Part 3

I’m late! I’m late! Life got in the way of yesterday’s post, so expect two today. Now, picking up where we left off in our Prominent Designer Series, I give you a suit by Paula Dean (no, not Paula Deen), a knockout number by Estévez, and a snazzy little coatdress by A. Harmay.

Paula Dean M101 - Attractive two-piece suit look

Estévez M221 - Bodice-beautiful, slim or full skirt

A Harmay M334 - Attractive, new side coat-dress

If any of you run into a copy of that Estévez pattern, please do let me know!

Stay tuned for Part 4 tomorrow shortly.

Prominent Designer Series: Interrupted

Whoops! I forgot to queue up the next installment of the Prominent Designer Series of sewing patterns before I left the house this morning, and I neglected to store the images in Dropbox so I could reach them remotely. I promise, you will see Part 3 later today. Thank you for your patience!
