New Vintage Patterns


I went to an estate sale today.  It was a private sale instead of one put on by an estate sale company. 

Boy, oh, boy, did I score!  I found a box of 50’s, 60’s and 70’s patterns.  There were 98 patterns in the box.  I also got a couple of bins of buttons.  Lucky me!

One of the great things about the patterns is that they are sizes 16, 18, 20, 20 1/2, 22 1/2, with a few size 14.  There were also 7 men’s patterns in the box.


I am a lucky person!

This is not the greatest photography on the planet, but here is a dress I finished for my daughter.  It is Vogue 1250.  I am no longer the last person on the planet to make this dress. 

I did have to make quite a few changes.  I made a size 6, but had to shorten the bodice and had to cut the bottom and insert strips in the side to widen it at the hips.  I have to get this in the mail to her, so I still don't know if it is going to fit her now.  Here's hoping!   :)
