This is what happens when people know you sew and suspicion you are a collector of all things to do with sewing. They sew too and have plenty of their own patterns to deal with, but can't stand to throw them out and don't have the space or the time to mess with them. So, a big box of 'Old Patterns' gets passed from one sewer to the next to the next until....yep, they got to me...literally!
Wow..it was like BackInThe Day Christmas! Fifty or so are patterns from the 1960's. Many of them I had at one time and remembered. Another twenty-five or so are from the late 1940's and 1950's.
The rest, at least 100 or more, are patterns from the 1970's, 80's and 90's. Yes, altogether there are close to two hundred patterns in categories for Misses, Teens, Girls, Boys, Toddlers, Babies and Men. Naturally, I had to sort, organize, file, date, and...well, you know...the OverDoSue Thingy!
So far, I have had to eat my words just once..."I'll put them in storage." However, I'm right on the verge of having a mouth full for number two..."I'll think of something to do with them." I haven't gone all the way with the 'One Something' I'm thinking about...just this post...so far...because I needed something to blog about for JUNE 1st.
Welcome June 2015!
My Oh My!!!
Who would have thought your June 1953 Summer Sewing Patterns
would be all the Retro Rage these 60+ years later?
