Here are scanned images of my patterns. There're a few extras in there which I hadn't listed.

65 cents for a pattern back then...wow--I have some of these as well--they brought back memories--uh, and I still use some of them but change them up a bit to look more modern!!

I love Simplicity 3733--there was a style very very similar this fall, but of course the price was much more!!

I am glad I never throw anything out...

LOL, well, I have a collection of about 150 patterns, all pre-1955, and another probably 30 that are 1955-1960. I won't post pictures of the collection, but I'm happy to sew along! I have the fabric for an awesome early 40s pantsuit that I have on my list for this month or next (hopefully).

Ok, that's it.  I'm going to have to buy more thrift store patterns.  I'm jealous of your collections. Tongue

I have a few but they look pretty complicated.  I'll see what looks the easiest and join along! And Sarahtar! You must share your patterns from the 50's-60's era! I looooooove that time, things were so glamorous!

OH! OH! OH! Does making about 6 dresses count?!?! HAHA! I am the costume mistress (weee!) for our play set in the 50's. I just won 30 patterns on ebay. I will scan them later. One question? These are all size 14 (vintage), any tips on how to make them a wee bit larger for today's sizes?  Most of them are bust 34" and waist 26-27", so they only need to be a small bit larger, but I've never made a pattern bigger.

Thanks ladies! Can't wait to get started!
