The Perfect Nose is hosting another swap! This time, participants are asked to post their swap-able goodies by the end of September, then find one or more swapping partners in October. When posting their parcel, they are asked to include a postcard, the crazier the better! Sounds like fun, right? The rules are set out in more detail here.
After cleaning out my sewing room, I have decided to participate! I have not one, not two, but four Australian Home Journal magazines, with original patterns, that I would like to give a new home! I also have a whole bunch of sewing patterns I will be putting up another day.
I am after mainly top and dress patterns that are suitable for wearing to the office, vintage or otherwise, and preferably in a 34 bust. Also would love any Burda or other sewing magazines that include patterns. But if you are interested in anything I have to offer, just drop me a line, and I'm happy to have a look at whatever you are swapping! This should be fun! :)
So here we have:
This magazine includes what appear to be the complete patterns for the 4 designs on the front cover (2 adult frocks in a 34" Bust, girls frock for 8 year old, girls frock for 4 year old). It also includes recipes, knitting patterns for some children's toys, crochet instructions for a woman's blouse, and much more!
This magazine includes patterns for the 4 designs on the cover, but one piece is missing (front pattern piece for ballerina frock 5135). The patterns are a ballerina frock, 32" bust, 2 adult designs for 34" bust, and a child's pinafore for 4 year old. Also includes recipes, several knitting patterns for men and women, some wonderful colour illustrations, and much more!
This magazine from the early 60's contains the original patterns, in factory folds, for the 3 illustrated designs on the cover (frock for 40" bust, frock for 32" bust, and playsuit and skirt for 8 year old). Also includes recipes, knitting pattern for 2 women's tops, crochet patterns, some great colour illustrations and much more!
This magazine contains what appear to be complete patterns for the 4 designs on the front cover (ladies frock and suit for 36" bust, child's pinafore and overalls for 4 year old). The magazine contains recipes, knitting patterns including a number of women's tops, and much more! The front and back covers have separated from the magazine, but are included.
Let me know if you are interested in swapping with me, and include a link of your swap items if you have posted them!
I will be posting some patterns over the next couple weeks, so if you didn't see anything you liked here, please come back and look again later! ;)
