Looking for a trade :)

Afternoon Ladies and Gents!

I am looking for an out of print Vintage vogue pattern for my husband. It is the Vogue 2367, Zoot Suit Pattern, 1940s Style Suit Chest 38 to 42. Because I am so short of funds after paying out of pocket to have my new baby I am looking to trade one of my patterns for the one I need. The reproduction vintage vogues come from a smoke free, animal free home and are all uncut. The vintage patterns all come from the 1930’s-40’s and are in their original packaging. Please keep in mind that  some of the vintage patterns are  fragile and a few are already cut. If you are willing to trade please send me a screen shot of the pattern you want and your contact information so that I can get with you privately to discuss shipping. Thanks in Advance!
