We mentioned a couple of weeks ago, how we had hit a sale with more patterns than we had ever seen. I was absolutely tickled to pieces to find a whole passel of Fashion Doll patterns, as I have a weakness for them, and have only several boxes full of them. It is a rare day when I find ones I don’t already own, so it was amazing to find so many new ones in one place. Not to mention that I spent a grand total of $5.00 on the whole shebang, and I’m not showing the odd other patterns that don’t fit into this category. Guess I’m set to torture future generations with piles of bad fashions, or just have fun looking.
Here is the whole pile in all its glory:
Even Babs can’t escape the horrible southwest:
I did succumb to a couple of these patterns anyway, and whipped out these two pillows:
This pair of patterns was in a totally new style for me. Each one had a mix and match of bodice and skirt patterns, and you just chose the ones you wanted, and put them together. Kind of a cool concept:
Now I am not sure how successful this pattern is. They are advertised inside as being Channel style suits. Well, only if Channel had a thing for felt:
Speaking of cute, check out the hats on this one:
May have to give this one a try. It gets huge brownie points just for darling illustrations.
As opposed to this pattern. The only saving grace of this one, is that they didn’t feel the need to torture Ken with a matching Raggedy Andy outfit:
There were several of these trousseau patterns. The illustrations are lovely. Not sure how good the patterns are, but the ideas are fun:
There were also a couple of magazines with doll patterns. This McCall’s magazine did a much better job on the knit fashions:
Well, I had better sign off, looks like I have a ton of sewing in my future! Please feel free to pass on any info you might have on any of the mail-away patterns; would love to hear from you.
