Aunt Emily

Emily Bowyer Hammel was my father's older sister. She was the dearest person I've ever known. Over several adolescent summers, she patiently taught me how to sew and how to cook. I loved her. Sadly, she has been gone these few years and I miss her very much. However, I am carrying on her legacy of sewing and trying to carry on her legacy of caring.

Vintage Pattern Snags=Part Eleven


A cool cafetan for relaxing. An eighty inch hem, so it should fit everyone - as the envelope says, proportioned to your height and one size fits all. I think I might need one of these - it takes six yards of 36 inch material, so maybe 4 of 45? Will have to figure out how to convert.

The height of fashion when it came out, this pattern really seems like a relic!
