Thanks for your honesty...

Last week I stopped by a local Mennonite fabric store to pick up some cheap zippers and they had this basket of patterns for sale all marked $.25. This little girls dress pattern is copyrighted 1965. I have been seeing so many great projects using these old pattern envelopes that I have started to pick them up when I see them.

Just yesterday morning I finally took it out of its bag for a closer look. I laughed out loud when I noticed the fine print warning under the pattern number....
I almost wish they had the same kind of warnings for adult patterns now-a-days. It could save a lot of frustration. What do you think? :)

  4. that's too much!! I do think it would help though to have a "suggestion" of what body type would look good in different pattern though, that is a great idea!

  5. I think putting that on patterns today would probably result in a huge uproar and boycott. Maybe they could politely say 'one size does not fit all' or something less subtle and it would be okay.
