#VintagePatternADay – Day One

You guys, I did a thing!

I bought a mystery box of vintage patterns from a lovely woman on Facebook Marketplace.

Look at this treasure trove:

This box is chock full of vintage patterns from the 1930’s through the 1970’s. They were obviously collected by someone who took great care of them, as each pattern is in a plastic sleeve or envelope and all pattern pieces seem to be included. Many are not even cut. This is, quite literally, the JACKPOT of vintage patterns, and I want to share them with all of you.

My plan is to post a #vintagepatternaday to showcase the beauty of these garments. There are so many I plan to make, and some I will end up parting with. Those I plan to sell via my Etsy shop. I will attempt to include some historical notes for each pattern.

Here’s a little tease of the types of patterns contained in this box:

My nine year old son has already requested the devil suit for Halloween this year!

This gorgeous McCall’s pattern is from 1961 and includes two versions of clown costumes with hats and a devil costume with cape, tail and hood.

What do you think I’ll find in this box?
