Vintage sewing patterns

I was lucky enough to score bags of patterns from my sister's mother in law, some dating back to the 50's and 60's. They are so darn cool - I so badly want to make some clothes for Anya but she has so many hand me downs in great condition - that I feel any more clothes is a waste! I have some cool material from my childhood that I would love to use for her, maybe next year... I think the Simplicity 6855 would make a cool winter coat pattern - great for Canberra!

I LURVE vintage patterns Ros - they are my first collection of anything, EVER. I'm a particular sucker for Weigel's. I think they belong in frames!
