My Mother's Patterns

 I snooped through my mother's pattern collection when I was at home for the weekend. These are some of the ones that caught my eye.

(I'm sorry for the sideways shots, I never know which way my phone is going to orient these things.)

 She used to make all her own clothes, and the ones my sisters and I wore as well.

 I'd love to make some of these outfits but there is a slight problems.

When my mom was using these patterns, she was 5'2" and weighed under 100 pounds. I take after my Scandinavian father's family; I was that size when I was 12. (~sigh~)


  1. There are some lovely patterns here. Your Mum was a very stylish lady!

  2. She still is. Thank you for reminding me of these -I may have to re-visit the romper pattern.
