Magic Trick

Somehow, don’t ask me to explain it, I magically ended up with these new (and new to me) patterns. I couldn’t have purchased them, because I had given myself a firm lecture on how I had more than enough to get me through one sewist’s lifetime. I was very convincing and thus put aside all pattern wanty-ness for the greater good of my pocketbook.

Yet… they are.

These three are for my aspiring fashion designer to work on her sewing skills over the course of the year.

This one had a gem hiding inside.

The original receipt of purchase!!

I found this undated one first and thought how nice it would be if had more information.

When I pulled the pattern all the way, the other one was inside!! The vintage ones are all from my favorite etsy seller, File Cutter. Tony, the owner, is always so nice and ships SO fast. Visiting the shop to get the link just now I spotted even more lovelies there. It’s dangerous browsing there.

You’ve been warned.

    • I think one of the suits, maybe the one I found the receipt in. I bought a ton (four, 60 inch wide yds @ $2.39 each) of this navy 50/50 cotton/rayon blend that would be perfect for it.


  1. I owe someone money for B4722, I have made all the versions in a variety of ways for DD. And with elastic waist, I have just added length as she has gotten taller. I have my mom’s stash (rather partial) of patterns and I fear going into those boxes.
