Any-who, I dashed to her side at her beckoning to find a small, fabulous haul of vintage patterns, be still my soul~ in my size! I am so happy! It is not every day you can spree on such a great selection, unless of course you only pay 19 cents a piece as I was able to!
Without anymore drama, let me get on to sharing with you what I ended up with...
I confess I am more thrilled with the nighty pattern than the business suit. But since it was completely intact and had such nice color, I decided to spend the extra few cents for it...and if I ever get around to starting an Esty shop I could just post it up to sell.
It is so sweet to find patterns like this one with notes from the original seamstress intact. It makes you wonder what she was like and who she was. I love a good story of vintage mystery.
Oh, and the pattern is of what has been illustrated on it's cover.Such a fabulous blouse!
I am guessing it to be from the 50's.
And these my dears, have been saved for last because of their wonderfulness. I have already bought a yellow calico to carry out the fabulous 50's blouses.But do you think that I will ever be able meet such a match for the 40's suit as shown?! It yells out to me from my sewing corner, pleading to be make once again. Maybe one day I will find something to meet your glory my dear one, until then I will keep you in safe keeping for that momentous day.
Have you found any patterns lately?
Which pattern do you like the best?
May all your pins lay straight!
