PostFrom 1966 Seventeen...To 2009 Starbucks

The very first Seventeen magazine that I bought was the October 1966 issue with Joan Delaney on the cover:

Joan Delaney's Headsheet Album
(Why is 25 written on Joan's bangs? Because I bought this copy at a public library magazine sale in 1982 for $.25!)

I enjoyed every page, but a certain Jonathan Logan ad really caught my eye. I loved the style of the dress, but there was no way that I could afford to buy one for $23.00. I didn't realize who the model was until I found MiniMadMOD60s last year...she's none other than Linda Morand!

Ad Campaigns Album: Jonathan Logan

I decided to find a pattern in a similar style and sew the dress myself. I chose this McCall's pattern that is modeled by Linda Syrota. I made the short, puffed sleeve version to wear for school. It turned out so well that I ended up making two!

FAST FORWARD 42 YEARS AND 7 MONTHS...to May 5, 2009 at a Starbucks in Beverly Hills:

Linda is helping ME get ready for our "photo shoot"! Who would have ever thought?!
