Monday Morning Inspiration

Good Morning!
For those of you who are sick and tired of vintage fashions, you are in luck as I have only one more week's worth of Modes Royale patterns to show you! As I said last week, I do hope that it has been interesting and that you have been able to glean a bit of inspiration from the pictures. 
Today I am sharing the Fall/Winter 1951/52 catalogue. I have found this one especially interesting. Take a look at the lower right hand corner of the cover. There were free patterns in this catalogue for a sweater and hip pads!!!!! I have not published the typed pages as they looked too pixelated, but my curiosity has gotten the best of me so I am going to have to go back and look for the hip pad pattern, not that ANY of us would want to make them, but I think it would be interesting nonetheless.
Enjoy the next to last edition of our Modes Royale parade!

Lovely sleeve treatment on the above left outfit. You'll probably see this again!!
I have a dress that is similar to the dress on the right. This is a beautiful neckline.

The above dress would make a lovely wedding gown.

I think the coat on the right is spectacular, but I also love the pocket line on the left coat.

A professor would fall off their if a student arrived to class wearing anything remotely similar to any of the above outfits!!! My, how we have changed.

Wishing you all a lovely and inspiring week!
