A Moment of weakness

Vintage patterns!

I can’t resist! I just can’t. I was over at A Dress a Day and she is posting about a couple of pattern sales. The first that caught my eye was a new site for me, Out of the Ashes and they have some lovely patterns there and GREAT prices. They have a sale that ends tomorrow, 20% off! Go to the Dress a Day link for info. I love me some vintage, as I was saying and picked up these beauties…

Simplicity 4106 “Sassy side fastened pencil skirt”

Simplicity 4106

A girl/woman can never have too many pencil skirts.

McCall’s 2948 “Delightful dress with bias skirt”

MaCalls 2948

I have noticed that lately I have been looking at more 70′s patterns, and this lovely just reached right out and grabbed me! I love view C with the patterned fabric and the tie, but high necks just don’t look good on me so I like instead view B, with a contrast band or maybe the tie, shorter skirt (as I am short). Funky!

Simplicity 5091 “Flutter Sleeved Blouse 1981″

Simplicity 5091

Now this is a lovely top! I have a few sheer fabrics so I will be making this next spring with maybe a white mini skirt (maybe denim) and I think this will be perfect. Pair it with a simple cami top and I’m off! Awesome.

So I just wanted to share my latest vintage pattern find.
