Recently I purchased some vintage clothing patterns from a closing antique shop (a dollar each ha ha ha!), and I wondered whether any one had any info on this sort of thing. Two are Simplicity patterns, numbers 2382 and 4547, those ones don't have a copyright date or anything. One is actually iron-on transfers, which really rocks!
THere is one McCall's, 7425, with no copyright date either. There is also one from Advance, 7856. I've never heard of Advance, but the patterns show ladies in pill-box hats and gloves, and notes are written in fountain pen, not ball-point. The last one is from a mail-order, and it's called Marian Martin Patterns, number 9146. THe postmark on it is Dec. 8, 1954. Does anyone know anything about these patterns or companies (except McCall's and Simplicity, I know about them already, duh)? I'm going to try the patterns, but I might end up decoupaging them on something. Any other ideas?
Apologies for the long post!
