Patterns by Charles James

Charles James was America's first couturier.  I don't know too much about him but he sounds like an interesting man. I came across these images of his patterns and thought they were pretty cool in their own right- especially the red paper pattern for a jacket.

  3. Charles James still looks relevant and amazing. Check out FIT's design museum...they have several pieces always on display.

  4. these are such a good find! I love the hand scribbled notations and markings...a peak in to fashion history.

    P.S. thanks so much for your lovely comments, I'm glad you like my little Mad Men series, can't wait till Sunday's premier :)
