Sorry dear readers, I haven't forgotten about you. I've been busy with open uni essays recently. I even had to have my mother confiscate my sewing machine so I would get things done instead of doing accidental sewing. Good news is I only have one essay to go so I thought I could take a break and share these delightful vintage patterns I was lucky enough to get my mitts on. My dear friend Jen came across the patterns when she'd been sorting through her Nan's stuff and she thought I might like to have a look at them. Needless to say I was teensy bit excited when she brought them over all the way from England.
Two of the patterns are by a British company Style Patterns Ltd and the last one is a Sunday People Pattern. Unfortunately the envelopes don't have years on them, but from the patterns I would say they're form the 1940's and 1950s, the Sunday People Pattern maybe even from the 60s. T'internet is failing me when looking for other information on the company which is a shame as it would be interesting to know more. I'm sure I've read something about the history of some of the English pattern companies in a blog, but I can't for the life of me remember who's blog it was, I'll let you know if it comes back to me.
