What will you wear this SPRING?

I am joining Suzanne at Coloradolady on Vintage Thingy Thursday. I was thinking last night about what I could post! The snack set and horse figurines will have to wait until another time. My lighting was bad and the dust is gathering faster than I can remove it! Oh, dear! I am organizing my sewing room once again and came across some of my vintage patterns. The bells rang, the whistles went off and I'm sure somewhere eagles are soaring! LOL With these 2 patterns Simplicity is offering some great skirts for the beach, hiking or a day at the local thrift store shopping for vintage items. The beach pattern originally cost 15 cents, while skirts are 35 cents. Patt-O-Rama patterns give you easy to follow instructions. I have a halter top, a split skirt or a sundress and jacket for the Saturday dance. I don't know who produced these patterns but they were mail ordered. Butterick and Simplicity offer you more skirt choices . After a long spring or summer day in the sunshine we must have some comfy pajamas. Simplicity offers "Truly Teen Style" for 25 cents or a cosy version at 15. I found no dates on any of the patterns. I'm guessing 1940's to early 1950's.

I love the old pattern illustrations and think they would look good framed, and hung in your sewing room. I found a box full in mother's garage but an animal had been in the box and shredded them. I could have cried. Thanks for visiting me today!

I was never into sewing, but my family did. We have had many patterns such as these and cloths made like them.

I love these. from the time I was a young girl I was always drawn to patterns. My mom and I would look through the pattern books, and I always got to find the patterns in the bins. I loved it then, and recently went to JoAnn's and sat down and looked through the books they had. Nothing like a vintage Pattern!! Lovely. Happy VTT!

These are wonderful! That was back when it was cheaper to sew than to buy ready-made! Now the patterns cost more than you can buy the item for!
