imsobadass- Alexander Henry and/or Michael Miller have awesome 1950's housewife fabric, maybe you can buy a piece of fabric and trace a pattern. Just a thought.

I thought I commented on this, but obviously I did not.  Whoops!  Anyway, they are absolutely fabulous!  I'm so in love with the colors you chose and the details on the dresses and shirts and especially the pearls swinging out on Do Si Do!

Once again, thanks to everyone for your kind feedback on the towels.

I have looked, too, for a 1950s-era pattern of a housewife doing chores -- but have not had any luck. I DO have a 1940s-era pattern of a woman doing household chores (days of the week). Email me if you're interested in it.

Just this past Saturday I was scrounging around through one of my favorite antiques stores (where I found the square dance pattern) and found a small stash of old Vogart and Simplicity patterns (from the 1940s)  -- mostly flower motifs for use on pillow cases, but still a good find. And only 50 cents per pattern. I bought 7. It's kind of addictive -- going on the hunt for vintage patterns! My best find so far is 16 vintage patterns for a grand total of 50 cents at a local thrift store.

Anyone else addicted to hunting for vintage patterns?  Smiley

sorry bout replying to the old topic (and for the second time Wink), but I was just wondering if these pattern's copywright date has expired so that you could post them for personal items (not to sell) like dyabolica has done before. but if their copyright hasn't expired yet, nevermind! i don't want to break any laws!  Smiley once again, great job! i love these patterns and the way you embroidered them!
