...Making a mess of things since 1973

 

Building a mystery

I'm going through the process of de-stashing, and I've started by selling off as many of my vintage patterns as I can. Some of them are going in my Etsy store, others will end up in lots on eBay; one way or another, I'm getting rid of the old, to make way for the new to make room for me to sew.

One thing about going through your vintage pattern stash, sometimes, as you go through the envelopes, you find some interesting surprises.  For example, as I was going through  the envelope for this pattern;


I came across the pieces for this pattern;



I don't have the instruction sheet, just enough pattern pieces to make the front, back, and pockets.  I'm not sure why, but I feel compelled to see if I can make this skirt from the pieces I have.

This is likely a fool's errand, but whatever gets me into my sewing room is fine by me!
