Has anyone got any patterns for vintage (Pre 1959) dresses, skirts, blouses, etc.
I would love anything Victorian, 1920s-1950s.
I see there are a lot of knitting topics around so I'm trying to keep knitting and crocheting out of this.

I have some 1940's patterns, but mostly for very small women.  I think I have one as old as the 30's.  And I have a couple of childrens' patterns that are late 50's, POSSIBLY older than 1959, but if so then not by more than a year or so, but I suspect they're more like 1955-1959.

I just obtained a whole carton of vintage patterns from a local nursing home that was going to toss them out. I'm not entirely sure what to do with all of them. Some are from as early as 1951 through the 80's. They are mostly women's clothing, with few children's and some men's tossed in. I haven't gone through all of them yet, but most seem uncut. There is a HUGE stack of Stretch & Sew master patterns from the 70"s. We are tossing a few random ones up on ebay to see if there are any bites. Most of them are for people much, MUCH smaller than I am, so extending them a bit isn't going to work. I just love them....I'm such a geek.
