Vintage Patterns for 10c! Yay!

Today I walked into the town centre – such as it is – to get some bleach from the supermarket as I needed to turn something that was cream in colour to something that was white in colour. Anyway, I decided that I would drop into our local op shop (thrift shop) just to have a look around and see if they had anything interesting. Low and behold right near the door a stack of old patterns selling for 10c each! Bargain! I had a look through and in amongst a lot of crappy eighties dresses I did find 3 little gems that I thought were quite cute and liked the look of, and at 10c a pop, well the price is hardly going to break the bank is it?  So I fished out my selected patterns had a quick wiz around the rest of the shop and not really seeing anything that caught my eye I made my extravagant purchase of 30c!


This one is from 1973 but I don’t think I will be making the short version somehow…



This one is from1975. I thought this was quite classic really. Simple lines and a nice drape to it.




This on is also from 1975. I wasn’t too sure I would use this, but once again at 10c I’m not going to be bothered if I don’t make it. I thought the pockets were quite cute. Notice the nice wedge heels that are back in fashion this summer??

Wow, that dress with the center front tab is indeed very similar to the Burda magazine dress! And a steal for only 10 cents. I just love vintage patterns.

Oh, wow, I'm soooooo jealous, they are great patterns, and 10c- bargain! Opshops around here (southeast melb)I've never paid less than 50c.
