Notions Department: Sewing patterns

Since we are in the 'Notions Department" I thought I would share a few vintage patterns from my collection.

I have a crap ton of old patterns.  Most of them I buy for the cover art.

I also buy some for particular features I like.
I love those big angled pockets with a flap!

I like the scrunchy midsection on this one.

Love the sheer open skirt apron deal.  

This one is my favorite!  It is a really old pattern, one of those with no markings or print on the pieces.  Once I can figure out how to size it a bit larger I want to make this outfit (sans the midriff).  maybe I could add one of those scrunchy midsection deals from that Butterick pattern!

This post is part of a long series I am doing that showcases ads and products from old pharmacies and 5 and Dime stores.  All of the ads are scans from the publication Chain Store Age September 1955.  The products photographed are from my personal collection.  I am running this series on auto-post so I can work on some projects around my real house.  I will return at the end of this series (April or May) back to "normal".

Your favorite is my favorite, too! Love it! That cover up jacket and the little skirt are just too cute for words!

my house is cuter than yours said...

And I LOVE the green print fabric the illustration shows!
