Vintage Treasures




Thanks to the ladies that offered their advice and experiences with buying vintage patterns! I offered $150 for the box (which contained 150 patterns!) and she accepted! Woo


Here are just a few of my faves...














They are so much fun to just look at, I swear that I was born in the wrong decade!!!

Everyone have a great weekend!

Nice collection! I heard that some thrift shops use patterns to wrap purchases. Noooo! You might have saved some from that destiny.

What a great haul. Several years ago, I was straightening my sewing room. I collected a bag of older patterns and donated them to ARC. I so regret doing that. ARC gets all our donations, but I always wonder about the fate of those patterns. What on earth did I give away?

Such a great find! I have heard that some thrift stores use patterns to wrap stuff to, so I make sure that I tell the clerk every time that I WILL buy any vintage pattern they get, so don't use them to wrap stuff, lol.

Love the McCalls dress - the neck details are fantastic.
