And She Did It All By Herself

(Time, March 21, 1955)

I like this ad. First, for the simplicity of the design. Second, for the drawing done by artist Saul Steinberg, and, finally, for the the copy. Nice little story about a woman buying a pattern and then making her own dress which she proudly wears in the Easter Parade.

A brief history of the Simplicity Patterns Company along with some samples of vintage pattern envelopes here.
