Hey all you sewing genii!  I'm trying to come up with the name of a company that made lovely patterns.  Or at least, one that I saw once.  They were more in the lines of "Folkwear" than "Simplicity", etc.  The pattern I remember seeing was for some simple sleeveless blouses and skirts, with sweet trim.  The picture on the front was maybe a line drawing of a couple of girls sitting about wearing said items.  I think the name for that pattern might have been "Water Lilies" but maybe that was the name of the company that made them?  My overall impression was of clean lines, low key but feminine trim, and a sort of historic feel.  Does that ring any bells for any of you?
Thanks for any help!

Sounds like a company called Park Bench Patterns, although I can't recall any "Water Lilies".  What I would suggest is going to www.sewingpatterns.com and checking out their selection -- they carry a lot of small, folksy labels including Park Bench and Folkwear.  I don't recommend actually ordering from them, as their customer service is spotty, but many of these patterns are available elsewhere and can be found easily once you know the name/number.

Thanks, Park Bench was close, but the young ladies on the front had faces, and were actually in a setting like under a willow by a pond, or something like that.  A for effort, though! Smiley
