A few weeks ago my friend Alison contacted me on facebook to say she had some old 60s patterns, mostly 34 bust and would  like them? Of course I jumped at the chance thinking I’d be getting about five or six but I was bowled over to receive over 50 vintage patterns form different decades.

There are some amazing patterns in there, vintage Vogue Paris patterns designed by Christian Dior and Nina Ricci for a start. I was so thrilled and would like to say a massive thanks to Alison for her generosity, I can only say that I will be sewing away and have some results for you soon (even if that means going to Tesco in full evening dress)

I’ve added them to My Vintage Patterns set on flickr and below are some of the ones I can’t wait to get sewing, I should say though, there are so many you should go and have a nosey…I couldn’t list them all on here, you’d be scrolling forever!
