Sept. 1

         Earlier this summer I went to Boston to visit a friend and while there we went to a flea market. Needless to say, I walked out with a box of vintage sewing patterns and somehow managed to fit them all in my suitcase (a feat of greatness if I have anything to say about it.) I'm just now going through them to see how many are whole or salvageable. It's quite a daunting task... there are really so many.

All of these children's patterns are cute as a button. I won't need to use any of them any time soon, but I think I have to trace a few before I can bring myself to sell them.
These are some great women's patterns, I love the red one. It seems like something Sophia Loren would wear.
This one is definitely my favorite though... I can't imagine what was going through the artist's head when this package was created. Loafers, a cigarette, mustache, and very feminine shorts... He is surely a force to be reckoned with.
