That’s what I wear when I go out to work in the garden.
I’ve been hoarding these patterns with the hope of someday actually sewing with them. I haven’t given up hope yet, but I’m at the point where I really want to play with the images on the patterns. I stopped myself from cutting in to one the other day. I decided to scan in high res first, and then see where it got me. Ultimately, I ended up printing some to play with. I added the scans to a flickr gallery so that readers could also benefit from their beauty and inspiration. This is what I’ve put in the gallery.
Serious pillow talk here. I can’t wait to make the 2 piece set on the left. Oh wait, I’m not a girls size 8.

I love how pointy she is, with the pointy umbrella, shoes, and even her hair. I wish I was that pointy. Not really.
Do you recognize the woman in grey?
You can find the digital cutter files for her here: Dandy Dress Pattern.
She looks quite pleased with herself. She looks like she drinks coffee all day.
Finally something I can wear. Love the tap pants.
These are adorable doll clothes. If I only had a girl…..
I’ll continue to add more because more is what I’ve got! Here’s the flickr gallery of these vintage patterns.
