As a lifelong collector of Victorian newspaper clip, cards (funeral, calling, post, and cigarette), and other ephemera, I started collecting vintage patterns as a sort of companion to my other collections.
As my collection grew, people began asking to purchase pieces so that they could cut them up and actually make the clothing. As a collector, I was horrified at the thought. But as a lover of fashion, I was intrigued. How could I use the patterns without cutting them?
From that, Picnic Girl was born.
In this shop, you will find high quality, exact copies, of the patterns in my collection. Each pattern includes an enlarged color copy of the front and back cover, complete copies of instructions, information on sizing the pattern to fit your needs, and exact copies of each…
