I was helping my mum have a clean out a few months ago and I discovered a few vintage patterns amongst her sewing things. Apparently she made this for me when I was about 2 years old (late 1960's). I just thought what a gorgeous pattern for a little girl. I especially love the sleeveless one with the knickers underneath. I am desperately wanting to make it, but alas, there is no one to make it for. I am sure my three boys wouldn't appreciate being dressed like this. I only have 7 nephews and one niece (who is 10 years old). Anyway, if anyone is out there in blogland with a two year old that likes the look of this pattern, I am available!!!!! I also retrieved a few other vintage womens' patterns which I will upload when I get a minute.

Oh my gosh! Am I the only who is interested??? I just asked my Mom last week if she had saved any of the patterns she used to sew my dresses when I was little and she said 'no'! I am definitely interested. What do I need to do???

Hi Melissa, where are you in the world? I think you are in the northern hemisphere. Anyway, let me know your email address via my email. I am not sure how to contact you.
