Vintage Sewing Patterns









I have such a big bag of 'reject' patterns from my sister's mother-in-law that I inherited. I was going to sell them on e bay or something... It will be a job to do before we move! I of course kept all the cool ones, like these pictured! My sister has a massive bag of rejects also... and she doesn't really sew! Some patterns I kept just because they made me laugh - like the knitting patterns for men - such bad photos! This bottom Butterick pattern is very Jackie O inspired I think!

I'm sure my mum must have a heap of patterns like these stashed away somewhere, I'll have to ask her! Bellbottoms - how funny. And yes, knitting pattern photos are the funniest, especially the men's. Do you think they deliberately looked so ridiculous for our enjoyment? It kind of seems that way...!! Have a good day!

That bottom one is very funny esp the girl on the left with the legs wide spread... just so you know they are shorts! LOL Although I do like some of those!
