Simplicity 3062

There’s nothing more fun than looking through patterns and picking out possible ‘future projects’. I spent a couple hours today looking through hundreds of vintage sewing patterns. I set a few aside for myself and have already started picking out fabrics in my mind. Even though I have so many projects on the go right now, I can’t help but dream of some new clothes for fall. These are all possible contenders that might be making a second appearance here in fabric form.

the workroom has acquired a large collection of vintage sewing patterns very similar to these from 1940s to 1980s. We’ll be putting out a few boxes full of them at the Kids Trunk Show this coming Sunday. They are worth a look, if only for the lovely illustrations/hilarious photos.

p.s. I marked down over sixty bolts of fabric on our shelves to help make room for the new fall collections, so it’s a good time for you to dream up some fall projects, too!
