More Old Catalog Pages

A couple of pages that look as if they could have come from the same catalog that was featured in a post I did earlier. How nice would it be to have some of these old, vintage looking floral prints? Although I am sure we wouldn't want to use cretonne in a quilt, the prints in a chintz or broadcloth would be wonderful.
I assume these are pajamas or lounging outfits. You certainly can't beat the price but it is hard to tell if the price is for the fabric or the outfit. In looking at the prices for the fabrics above, I think the prices are for the outfits. They are so cute and evidently for little girls through teenagers. I especially love the one on the little gal seated on the floor. (Click to enlarge)
Today was Sit and Sew for the quilt guild and a very nice way to spend a day. A congenial group of gals and some giggles, and most actually do get quite a bit accomplished.

Carol - I agree - I think the prints would be really cool - and I think you did a GREAT job (as always) matching the backing for the quilt on your last post - I've had no time at all to craft but hope to do some while on vacation at the end of the month....Jewels
