I’ve come to realize that it is no longer appropriate for me to visit ebay without adult supervision.
It was bad enough when I had to call into service overflow boxes for the patterns that wouldn’t fit in my enormous pattern cabinet, but now even my overflow boxes have their own overflow boxes. I am on a complete, utter and total pattern buying hiatus until I a) have a clear-out or b) find a second pattern cabinet (know of one for sale within a four hour drive of Southwestern Indiana? Get in touch!)
I’ll be taking some time this weekend to sort out my own personal pattern chaos, so while I’m trying to impose order onto the madness, here’s a treat for you: $35 to spend at Bessie Miller Vintage.
Bessie has all manner of vintage in her etsy shop, but I think you’ll be particularly interested in her super affordable patterns.
When I say they’re affordable, I mean 1947-pattern-in-factory-folds-for-$7.99 affordable, like this:
Bessie is also a long-time contributor to WeSewRetro. You might remember seeing her fab forties swimsuit
