Is there anyone who would like to sell their old sewing patterns? I would really like to sew with patterns circa 1950 and earlier. Is there anyone who has old patterns they would be interested in selling to me? I would love to hear from you! I am interested in all kinds.

I am looking for a pattern for a bed jacket that is made from towels. I remember my sister doing them in scouts back in the 70s maybe.

I remember using towels for several things, not a bed jacket but bath robes and swim suit coverups. Look at these pictures and see if you can find the one you want.

I had the cutest pattern for a shirt that was literally two pieces, a solid front and the matching pieces in the back. It had a single front and a back that buttoned at the meeting point. It was a very cute summer top, and I can't figure out where I can get another one. Does someone have the number and the manufacturer? I would love some help from my wonderful friends on TF! Thanks in advance.

I had that pattern. There were shorts too, right? I may have tossed since it was from the 80's and I am no longer that size!


But I will look when I get home and keep you posted either way.
