50's/60's/70's/80's Vintage patterns on offer as photos direct to you

Hi there all, I hope that you are well and not stabbing your fingers like I do every time I go anywhere near a needle and even sewing machines...somehow...πŸ™„

So I am not a sewer, I am a destroyer of beautiful fabric and dresses instead, though I don't mean to be.

I totally failed at sewing in high school and fail every time I have a go now, it doesn't matter how much I watch tutorials and practice.

It is a shame too cause I love clothes, colour and my own fashion. I love designing outfits and modifying outfits, so I always have to pay someone to do it for me.

So I inherited my lack of ability to sew well from my mum- but atleast she could sew, though she used to say that she wasn't very good at it and only did it cause she had 3 kids. I thankfully don't. BUT I can't sew at all.

Mum had big ideas of making outfits from scratch and over many decades bought quite a lot of fabric and patterns to make these things, but with 3 kids, never got around to it.

So although I cannot sell you all of the authentic vintage fabric I inherited, don't get me wrong, I do want to sell it and get it out of here, but from a physical standpoint, it would cost a lot to get it to you from Australia (if it ever actually arrived to you...) and as it is vintage and extremely good quality, it is worth a fortune...

HOWEVER, after having some discussions with my good friend @smilestitches about him making a special outfit for his mum, I have offered to send the photos of the pattern packets and am happy to take each pattern out of its packet to photograph it as best as possible and send the photos, so at least he can have a look at the shapes and measurements and stuff like that and so I would also like to extend this offer to all of you too @monica-ene @bimpcy @shanibeer @sumaiya777 and anyone else who would like a copy too.

And you may think that these are old, but yet I see so many young people wearing them- they are all back in fashion now, so it doesn't matter whether its a design from either era, as long as they suit the person that's going to wear them, it all works...Kind of like me, I'm still stuck in the 70's and 80's...🀣...and I wouldn't have it any other way.

So women's bodies have changed a lot over the decades, but you guys are clever, so I'm sure that you will be able to take these measurements and modify them to your needs.

If you don't want the patterns, no worries, but I do hope that I've given you some creative inspiration to make some of these classic beauties yourself.

I took all the photos of these about 4 or 5 years ago on my old iphone, so photos on my new phone will be much better.

So like I said, if you want photo copies, just send me a message!

So here's my mum on her 21st birthday in 1962 and this dress she made for herself

and here is the dress here 2 years ago when I took this photo....so considering it's almost 60yrs old, it still in pretty good condition...

Anyway, here are the patterns from Butterick, MCCalls, Vogue, Simplicity and ....

AND you will see that mum even wrote the dates on some of them and I even noticed that there is one in there that she labelled October 1961- 60 years ago now. How freaky is that!
