I love going to the op shop and rummaging thru their patterns.  Quite a few of them even give them away for free.  I love shirt dresses and I added contrast sleeves to this one, I used parts of an old top of my own.  The pattern is from 1973 I think, Simplicity 6121, it didn't have an envelope, but all the pieces and the instructions were there.  Only the pants pattern had been cut.  The fabric is cotton drill, from the op shop fabric table, and is a good weight for our oncoming winter.

I love the yoke Smiley

The next one is a little fleece jacket from a modified version of simplicity 5398 from 1982.  i prefer jackets to windcheaters as DD can get them on and off easier by herself when she is playing

The last one is a little top that she can wear if its cool but not too cold, and it will look cute over a long sleeve t shirt.  It is made from embroidered wool that I bought at a fabric flea market.  It is simplicity 7903 from 1977.  It buttons at the back.

these are the envelopes from the last 2

Hubby was a little skeptical at first, but once he looked past the hideousness of the artwork, and saw the finished items, he was convinced and doesn't ask why i look at the old patterns so often. 

Thnaks for looking and any comments are appreciated.

hideousness of the artwork???  Shocked   I love kids vintage patterns and the artwork is one if the things that I love about them, besides making something out of them. I guess you have to be from that time to appreciate them.

Love the jackets and top you made!
