I love it when the Presbyterian Women have their rummage sale.
You never know what you'll find and it's super-duper cheap. You gather a whole armload of stuff and go to the table to pay and they look at your stuff--don't count it, just kinda take an eyeball inventory and say, "Oh....how about $3.00?" and you come home with a lamp and a bunch of books and a picture frame (with one little dent) and some kitchen ware and maybe a purse and jewelry and these fabulous 1957-1961 McCalls dress patterns!
I love looking through old sewing stuff, but had never really considered buying clothing patterns before. I've bought embroidery patterns and fabric and wooden spools and buttons. Maybe I've just never seen any old patterns! There was this big plastic bag full of patterns and I dug around and chose these. Upon arriving home I wondered why I hadn't bought the whole darn sack of them! They are so adorable! Will I make them? Probably not. But wouldn't tone of these be an awesome prom dress? And Molly's a junior this year...and she like vintage stuff....so you never know what miracle will happen!
