Anyway, my most recent vintage pattern acquisition is not just one pattern but 41 patterns! Which cost me a total of $20.50!! (needed to add an extra exclamation point to that one as I am very proud of myself) I won this awesome lot on eBay, it did come down to the wire with a last minute bidding war but I prevailed. Which is fortunate as I might have gone totally psycho had I not, having lost out on a lot the night before which had been a bitter disappointment to say the very least.
Now I just need to figure out where to put them, my collection has quadrupled! I finished counting all the pattern pieces last night and all are there with the exception of one or two missing a facing or a cuff.

I also found a few "lessons" inside the patterns. I had never seen anything like this before. I found a Bound Buttonholes Guide, A Guide to Set in Sleeves and a How To Trim A Jumper....
Here's the Bound Buttonholes Guide:
I also discovered that Muu Muu was a real word, like a real thing. This reminds me of my great grandmother for sure:
There were also a few Maternity dresses. I really like the McCall's one...
