Code Name: GardeniaGertie (Featured Pattern and Sale!)
So I'm just popping in briefly to share a faboo pattern and give you the inside scoop on a sale you might be interested in. Denise of The Blue Gardenia is oh-so-kindly offering my readers 20% off your purchases this weekend! Just use the code GardeniaGertie to get your 20% off; that's good until midnight Pacific Time this Sunday.
GardeniaGertie is definitely going to be my code name if I get involved in any glamorous international espionage. (It's especially apt since I love gardenias; I wore the most gorgeous one ever in my hair at my wedding. Their fragrance always takes me back to that day: sigh! I later tried to grow a potted gardenia plant and I killed it within a week. Boy, I'm chatty today!)
The pattern above caught my eye on my last visit to The Blue Gardenia (it's in a 34" bust on the first page of the 50s patterns). The shorts and top are cute enough, but the bikini top has that extra something special. I love the structured, lingerie-look of it, don't you?
I will henceforth quit my yammering so you can go peruse the Blue Gardenia site. Enjoy!
