Wow! Vintage pattern stash arrives

A little while ago, one of my customers offered to send me her late mother’s stash of patterns. They arrived this week, accompanied by a lovely letter saying how delighted she was they were going to a good home.

I’ll be adding many of them to my Twelve in Twelve giveaway so I’ve let her know that they will be going to many good homes, all over the world.

Here are the patterns I will be keeping –

Beachwear. I’m not planning to go for the full ensemble on the right (Mr Doodle is looking relieved), but the pieces could work separately.

Dresses – love all of these, especially the yellow one.

Blouses – I haven’t made a blouse yet, and there are some interesting details on these designs.

And here is a sneaky peek of the rest, which will be up for grabs!

You still have time to enter my first giveaway – more details here.

I’ve not done any non-work related sewing this week, as I’ve got two craft fairs this weekend (Mid Devon Show and Coldharbour Mill for local readers).   Maybe I’ll have my first go at grading a pattern up next week, and try that yellow dress.
