I'm finally getting on the ball and getting some stuff together in my Flickr albums. I just added a set of My Vintage Patterns, and uploaded most of the baby/children patterns I've been gathering at yard sales and received as gifts, etc. I love these vintage styles of clothing for children, and have grand plans (of course) to make lots of them. And the thought of using vintage fabric on them as well, makes me practically giddy.
These coats are so fabulous. I intended to make the boys coat for Calvin last winter, but got overwhelmed at the pattern instructions. I'm amused that the older patterns assume so much more sewing knowledge (mostly that I don't have!) than modern pattern instructions do. It seems like what is said in one step in 1960 ends up being 10 steps in a modern pattern.
