Who remembers "middy" tops or the sailor collar look in clothing?
I haven't seen any for a long time but when they were in style, I thought they were very cute.
I wonder if they will come back. I don't need them to come back since I doubt I'd wear that style today, but was just wondering.
So many things come and go, as we all know.

Loved them. Not sure I would wear it now, but they still look stylish.
Seeing those patterns brought back so many fond memories of my mother teaching me to sew. She was a seamstress in a factory and did piece work (miserable conditions). But, she loved to sew and passed that love on to me.
Makes me teary thinking of it. Thanks for the memories!

I don't remember "middy" tops but do remember sailor style collars. I can remember being in Home Ec class at school and having to buy a pattern to make an outfit. I remember I made "hot pants" that had an attached bib in a navy blue velvet. Not realizing velvet had a "nap"(sp?) all the pieces I had cut for the outfit were all going in different directions. My teacher undid the whole thing and put it all back together somehow so the fabric was all going in the same direction.
Needless to say I think that was my first and last attempt at a homemade outfit!
I guess she gave me an A for effort as I did pass the class, as I recall.

Haha! Well you did better than me!
I got a C (and the home-ec teacher was being extremely generous!) on my first and thankfully last "dress" which was an awful navy blue denim potato sack looking thing that was supposed to be a dress lol!
Strangely, much later I did costuming for our college theater and we all had to spend several hours a week sewing stuff! I hated it all over again.
My step mother was wonderful with a sewing machine. It takes so much patience. I totally admire anyone who sews or crochets or does quilting or cooking for that matter!
