Never Ask A Lady Her Age: Pattern Dating

Like Katherine, I have a fondness for vintage mail order patterns. I’ve been using my FAVORITE method for archiving mail order patterns. Certainly, I’m not first to discover this incredible pattern dating resource, but I haven’t seen it mentioned and thought it was worth sharing, if only as a redundancy.
