I'm sure many of you have already picked your patterns but I thought you might enjoy seeing some of the 1930s and 1940s patterns in my stash. Some I have used but many I have not. But I swear I plan to!! Here's a quick look at the patterns I've made up.
|I should really make one of these collages for the 1930s. :)|
Simplicity1469 - Winter Formal Dress
Simplicity 1668 - Dress for a Summer Wedding
Hollywood 1413 - Blue and White Birthday Dress
Mail Order pattern 2588 and - Polka Dot Blouse and Slacks
Advance Pattern 4199 - The Red and White Swing Dress
Most of these I've uploaded to my Facebook album but a few I have not. I have a couple 1920s patterns to add as well. The Simplicity pattern below I started working on last year. The plan was to have the dress ready to wear for the WWII event in Stowe but the fabric I picked turned out to be a poor choice. The dress has pleats that extend from the bodice down into the skirt. My fabric wanted to shift all over the place and I couldn't get the pleats to look nice. Maybe someday I'll tackle that dress and try to finish it but I'll admit it's not very high on my sewing list at the moment.
These two I bought along with McCall 3306. Oh the hats!! I'm really excited about McCall 3143 because it includes both a dress AND coat pattern.
Check out the novelty print on Vogue pattern 5643. It has horses! wish I could find some fabric just like it. :)
