Tuesday brightener... Vintage patterns

Aren't these old patterns fabulous? The dresses are all beautiful - and look how tiny those waists are! Too fun. They made me smile when I came across them so I thought they would make a great Tuesday brightener.
Hope you enjoy this little glimpse of beauty from the past. :)

  1. I remember seeing patterns like these in the dimes stores in my youth. Took lots of petticoats to wear these.

    Stop by my kitchen when you get a chance. I have something for you. Enjoy your day.

  3. I've been thinking about getting some vintage patterns and making dresses! however, I soon realized the sizing was a lot different back then and I do not have a tiny waist! :-( I still have fun looking for vintage patterns on Etsy though...

  10. Delightful pictures!
    My French grandmother had an exquisite lingerie boutique back in the late forties, everything was hand made, silk, and lace.
    When nylon was invented ... she shut down.
    I remmeber browsing the prints like the ones you show here when I was little.
    I have an original one framed in my wardrobe. Nice memories ...

I am now off to read the posts that I have missed and to look around your gorgeous blog.
    Love & Hugs
