I am thrilled to be participating in the Cherished Collections Summer 2011 Blog Tour hosted by Casey of Elegant Musings. Below is a sample of my collection of vintage patterns. They are in no particular order. I own approximately 115. You can see the rest of them by visiting my blog. The majority were purchased from antique and thrift stores anywhere from 25 cents to no more than $4 a  pattern, a few were won in a giveaway hosted by Sew Retro from Mom’s Patterns, one is from Folkwear, the last four are from Sense & Sensibility Patterns and Liesl’s Sound of Music Dancing Dress Pattern was won in a giveaway from Edelweiss Patterns hosted by Sew Retro. And here are links to two of them that I have made up: No. 1, Vintage Vogue 2858, 1944 Design and No. 2, Simplicity 6667, 1974 dress. I have been busy making a baby; so I’ve had to put my sewing on hold for a little while. My baby is due in approximately four weeks. I look forward to getting back to my normal size and putting more of these patterns to use. On my blog at the end of the post, I will show you how I store them. I hope you enjoy my collection. Thanks for looking.
