{Timeless Style} Bathing Suit Beauty

The real secret to sexy?  Leaving a little to the imagination…

Just ask Alfred Mugford. The photo below, taken in 1941 in Waikiki, Hawaii, was his favorite photo of his then fiancé, Margery. Margery “Muggy” Mugford was a swimwear, lingerie and sportswear model at McEnerney’s department store in Wakiki. She went on to open her own swimwear shop and modeling agency. A mere five years after this photo was taken, “the world’s smallest bathing suit,” the bikini, debuted in France. Forget mystery, the rest is history….

“This was my grandfather’s favorite picture of my grandmother. It was taken shortly before they were married. He was 22-years old. She was 18. It represents who she was: beautiful, strong, athletic, independent, confident and sexy. She was a remarkable person.” -Cori Redford

    My next big sewing prejcot is to decorate my daughters big girl room. A quilt for her toddler bed, pillows, wall decorations, and some sort of window treatment. Looks like I have a pretty big prejcot on front of me. I think it would look just darling in the new City Weekend line!


    Yes I have, Walk Away The Pounds by Leslie Sansone.
    I’ve seen Denice Austin on TV for years now, from time to time have joined in before starting my work day when time would allow. So it would be a great thing if I could get the book and videos, to use them with my schedule on a daily basis.
