Thanks to Katy for sharing the lovely floral version - it looks as though she stepped off a 30's Hollywood movie set!

Another gorgeous pattern from this shop. I'm excited to try the coat in gold silk velvet. Some interesting construction on the gussets will be a new challenge for me. Fingers crossed!

I just love the wide selection of vintage patterns from VintagePatternGirl! This is the 3rd pattern I've ordered in a month. They are high quality reproductions on a nice weight paper. All the pattern pieces are marked for you unlike many vintage patterns that were unprinted. Shipped lightning fast and wrapped in very pretty tissue paper with a pretty green ribbon.

Just gorgeous! I cut this paper pattern last night and was thrilled with the quality of the paper--not too heavy, not too light (picky detail, I know, but I like good paper for patterns). It is clear and easy-to-read. Also, the seller could not be sweeter!! This is my new favorite pattern source. :)

Love love LOVE this pattern! I made it out of 100% cotton in a 30's feedsack print. It's so comfortable I decided to make another one so I can live in these all summer.
