I scanned a few looks from one my most treasured pattern booklets. Vintage knitting patterns are notoriously difficult to execute, but gee golly, the results are incredible.

Sometimes I imagine how lovely it would be if we still lived in a world where dapper dress and perfectly-rouged lips were a requirement. Such poise, such elegance, such grace...

Then I think how much effort it would take to get ready just to schlep over to 7-Eleven and talk to that weird checkout boy Dmitri and, well, it doesn't seem quite worth it.
