I have been collecting vintage patterns since long before I even began sewing. There are way too many to photograph so here is a selection.
These are my favourite patterns sized newborn to three.
Here are my favourite size 4s.
And here are my most treasured vintage french pattern books.
I collect mainly childrens patterns from the 1950s to 1970s with a few womens ones thrown in as well. I also have quite a few Enid Gilchrist pattern books and old womens magazines from the late 1950s to mid 60s that came complete with a pattern in each issue.
Apart from patterns I also collect vintage childrens books, especially those illustrated by Marcel Marlier, Alain Gree and Eloise Wilkin. As well as vintage kitchenalia and cute housewares. I could go on and on, but I will stop there in case Mr Big reads this and reminds me that I am not meant to be collecting anything at all.
Thanks so much to Angela for coming up with such a swell game. I am a straggler I know. I always seem to be a late comer to these things. But better late than never, right?
