~ TIMELESS CHILDREN'S SEWING PATTERNS~
(Lots of Women's Patterns, too!)
You know...sometimes you're just in the right place at the right time! And whenever I am and stumble upon a find SEW SWEET that my head gets dizzy I just know it's because I'm right where I'm suppose to be in my life.
I've always loved vintage sewing patterns and when I find them from the 1940's (and before) I feel drunk with joy! I snagged about fifty to sixty patterns over the weekend for just a few measly little bucks and although some I already have, most I've never seen. I've collected old patterns for years and years but this little grouping is going to be SOLD!
Not sure if eBay or Etsy is the best place~
Can you even sell old patterns on Etsy?
I just love this little dress!
And this one, too! Original cost was .35. WHAT?
Patterns are simply outrageously priced these days!!! Have you noticed? And what is it with the 50% off sales always running? Why not just put a fair price on the patterns and let them be?
Isn't this a sweet baby layette! No date on this one but the pattern on the inside isn't printed. Just has perforated letters on the pieces! The thought of sewing with a pattern like this makes me SKERD...:)
I remember my Gramma Bertie making me dresses like these...does that make me old?
LINDA AND I - 1962/63
Grams always said she made my skirt shorter than Linda's because I had squatty legs. (Thanks, Grams!) I'll have you know I'm a teensie wheensie bit taller than Linda is today (that's my story and I'm stickin' to it!).
Vintage doll pattern in the lot, too!
How about this swing coat/jacket/robe thingy??? The pattern size says 14...bust is 32". That doesn't make ANY sense to me!
I'm hoping to have time later this week to photograph the lot of these old patterns and get them listed for sale. If not this week then next week....or the next week...or the next week.... Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm...
Hope your Monday is awesome!
Love to you...
