Pattern haul!

I went out bill paying on Friday - not very exciting ... but I thought, I'll just check on my favourite charity shop on the way back to see if they have anything interesting.  I was SO glad I did!  Look at these little beauties, all in my size too and uncut!

They date from the 60's and early 70's ... I love the coat and the shift dresses.  Actually, the model on the far right of the coat pattern with the long hair reminds me of Kate Middleton!


  1. Congradulations Diane, What a great find..Isn't that so fun, when that happens.. I love the shift patterns ..so cute.. Happy sewing..

  2. Super find with this lot! Love the simple neckline of 4074 - very plain but extremely stylish...which one do you plan on whipping up first???

    1. I like the 4074 neckline too - so it might be this one that I make first Judith.
