Peter, as usual your review is helpful and your photo shoot / story are entertaining ++. Cathy looks fabulous in her new playsuit. Love that you made the top reversible to match the shorts AND skirt. Really fantastic outfit. :)

What a great outfit - and I love the story line ~ though Cathy stepping in front of the bus scared me.

All the girls love a sailor - and they also love a playsuit. Great story and photos.

Gorgeous outfit, and Cathy looks fabulous as always. Remarkable to think the pattern is 65 years old.

I can't believe that was an old sheet. I just LOVE how those fabrics look together. Great idea on the back elastic section. That really is a pattern that works in many eras.

Love the outfit and the slideshow. The outfit reminds me of what Mom wore back in the day. ;)

Thanks for all the ideas for a reversible outfit. I adore these vintage play suits. Now if only I had Kathy's legs!

Looks great! I agree it doesn't look museum or costume party. It looks very contemporary and fun. :-)

This sure looks great. You always find the perfect fabric and this does not look vintage to me. Great job.

Great idea on reversible! Thanks for such a good review. I hadn't heard of the Advance patterns. Now I'm on the look out.

What a lovely story, and the perfect outfit to go sailor-hunting in! You've put our (secret) dreams into words and photos. Highly entertaining, as always, and the outfit was gorgeous! Lucky, lucky Cathy - to have her own personal seamstress/tailor. And she was pretty lucky to finally find those sailors too!

When I grow up I want to sew as well as you do. And if I ever moved to New York I want to be best friends with you and Michael.
