I have been so very good. Incredibly good for me! I have not bought a new pattern since January! This is me! No pattern….since the first week of January.
Well, I lost the plot over the weekend and bought a few patterns. I was forced to go to a costumer’s yard sale. Yes, forced to go….that is my story and I am sticking with it! One of the sellers had bins of patterns. One bin in particular had 30’s and 40’s patterns! Upon asking how much for a pattern, I learned they were all 1$. WHAT!!! So I scrambled and picked up a few. I only had $5 on me…..I really went without the intent to buy or I would have had more $$ on me. So, I bought 5 patterns at $1 each.
The envelopes of the patterns are in shreds or, in one case, missing completely. Didn’t care, for a $1 I was willing to give them a shot!
One of the patterns is Simplicity 4662. Note, this picture is from the Vintage Pattern Wikia because the envelope is in such bad condition.
I love the coat. I must give this coat a try!
Also, Hollywood Patterns 739.

Another 1940s dress but isn’t lovely???
But then my camera battery crapped out. Will post the others tomorrow.
