I'm addicted to buying vintage patterns from thrift stores.  The only problem is I never make any of them.

So, I'd like to have a sew-a-long with anyone else who has some really cool old patterns they've picked up but haven't been brave enough to actually start.  We don't all have to do the same pattern, just as long as its a pattern that's pre-90's.

I'm one of those people. I bought a crud-load on ebay from the 50's, 60's, and 70's. Now I've got about 50 and I just need a kick up the but to use them. Do you want me to list the ones I have?

Oooh, yes.  When I get home tonight I'll dig through mine and post them as well.

I really like the Simplicity 8541 and McCalls 5925. I think I might have some similar patterns in my stash.

I'm in, if that's cool! 

I have a ton of vintage patterns, and really want to make some up . . . I'll list them when I get home, and maybe post some pictures of some of my favorites?

Yay!  The more, the merrier. Smiley

Ok, so far out of my stash these are the ones I was able to find pictures ofon the web.  Of course, the one I like the most (McCall's 5279 from 1976) I can't find a picture of anywhere, so Il'l have to scan it later.
