Patterns from the Past

Just a quick post today as I'm steaming along with making progress on my quilt. I've been having a dig around  to see what I could do for my next project and came across a few  vintage sewing patterns I picked up over the years. 

I really love vintage clothes  and think that using vintage patterns are a really great way to  get a authentic vintage look whilst giving the opportunity to have  unlimited choice in fabrics and colour. 

I especially love these night and lounge wear patterns, theirs something really luxurious about pretty well made lounge wear but truly vintage pieces are really hard to  come by.

After re-finding these at home I started having a bit of a window shop online  to see what's on offer to extend my own collection of patterns. These are some contenders that I am dying to purchase:
40s -McCall No.6561- Womens classic style button front dress with optional sleeves and collars.
