What shall we call this? Magazine....ehm...Wednesday? ;)
We made a spontaneous trip to an antique store yesterday, and found bunches of vintage goodies! Among the vast stash is this lovely magazine from 1951; McCall Needlework. It is full of patterns for everything you can think of - from sweaters to hats to potholders!
Just to warn you, there are something like 37 pictures in this post! You would think I didn't narrow it down at all, but in fact there are over 100 pages in total. So, dive in and enjoy! There are patterns for all of the items pictured, other than advertisements and sewing projects. The patterns are scattered throughout the pages, but they are in the same order as in the magazine.
If you want to see a much larger picture, right click on the photo and click "open image/link in new tab." You can then zoom in however close you want, for easy pattern-reading.
And if you made it this far, congratulations!!! ;) Do let me know if you make anything from the patterns - I'd love to see what you made!
Amidst salsa-making, and other sewing-time-stealing occupations, I'm trying to get Grandma's wedding blouse (and hopefully the skirt too) done in time for the HSM deadline, which is Monday. We'll see how that goes!
Thanks for bearing with my spontaneous blogging! :)
