Yay for FREE patterns!
It is a new month so it is pattern giveaway time at Lottielulu. This month I am including one of my favourite patterns, McCalls 2382. I love this style but I know my limitations. I am crappy at putting on collars and try as I might to look cool and casual in a front opening dress I have never pulled it off. This is also totally the wrong size for me so I know it is time to pass it on. It is a vintage 1970 pattern, size 12, and all pieces and instruction sheet appear to be there even if the envelope has seen better days.
Next up is Vogue 8545 from 1955 for a 30inch bust. Just look at the glamourous illustration, this gal is the epitome of chic! I adore the neckline on view A, it is so so lovely. Again all pattern pieces and instruction sheet seem to be there, although I have not pulled them all out to check properly. Keep in mind this is an old style paper pattern with holes and notches for markings, there is no printing on the pattern pieces themselves. It might sound extra tricky but if you take it slow it really isnt that much harder to use.
And last is Simplicity 6861 in size 12 from 1966. I love the skirt and blouse version of this one especially. The pieces and instruction sheet are all in good condition and it looks like most pieces are uncut!
So if you would like these gorgeous old patterns then just leave a comment here telling me your favourite Christmas tradition. I will draw one lucky name next Tuesday the 11th of November. I will post anywhere in the world so all you international gals can play along too. So go on, stop lurking and leave a comment!
