Vintage sewing.

This morning before getting ready for work I started pulling out all my vintage patterns.  I posted some of them in my Etsy shop a while back, and some I left for myself.  I love these old patterns....the pictures......the PRICES....just the look of them...ya know?  I have quite a collection from Estate sales and Craigslist!

But anyway,  I want to make something for my other Etsy shop to sell.  I know about the copyright problem, and would make them different from the pattern itself....perhaps trace and create an entirely different piece...but just to get ideas, here is what I pulled out:

Now, I'm not into the coats, but I do like the collar little Miniature Pinscher loves to pull when we go for a walk.  I mean, she's six years old and is still spunky.  Anyway, I would make this collar cover...maybe out of fleece, decorate it a little....maybe embroider a name on it???  What say you?

And these:

Aren't they just too cute??

Oh, then for myself, I just love this dress, but I would have to alter the pattern to make it bigger.

I just adore the cut-out look on the top.  It would even make a cute top...hmmmm.....

And this one would make a great dress for lounging in the backyard this summer...a thin cotton fabric maybe?  I love the ties on the straps.

So as you can see, my brain is in overdrive today....

Oh, the doggie pattern is the best!!!! I'm not a dog person, at all, but I can tell you, from the number of things I have been asked to make for dogs(as a dressmaker), that pattern would have been ideal! I haven't seen others like it...
