Once More, Thrift Score!

Have I told you lately how much I love Vintage Patterns? Sewing, Knitting, Crochet, Embroidery...love, love, love them! The artwork is reason enough, and the fashion just slays me.

I adore books of patterns, like this beauty, circa 1950.

Let's take a look inside, how about this sweater? And if you can't picture that big starbust on yourself, there are examples inside of how to adapt the motif for pillows, rugs, and many other items!

Everyone needs to know how to get their measurements, but doesn't this diagram remind you of anything?

Probably it's just me.

Check out these beauties...

And last but not least, see the one on the left? I would totally wear that sundress. If it were actually sized for me.

AHA! You got it with those diagrams!
It isn't just you. When i scrolled down and saw the bovine cuts chart I was already nodding vigorously and laughing my butt off!
