I've been babysitting my grandson these days and haven't been able to frequent the local thrift stores lately.  However, I did find more lovely vintage patterns on my last visit!

 These are Ann Person, Stretch & Sew Patterns.  I like these patterns because they're great for use on woven fabrics, jersey knits, stretchy fabrics.  And, if you do not own a serger, no can sew these patterns using a regular sewing machine.

Panty pattern. Great to have and can be eco-friendly if they are made from t-shirts!  Here's a tutorial for you!  (just click on the word 'tutorial')

So, since we're on the subject of 'unmentionables', these cute nightgowns would be fun to make!

Sorry, this photo is blurry.  These are various cute peasant dresses, tunics and tops.  I love these type top/dress patterns, they are a flattering design on me!

T-shirt pattern.

I wonder with all of these great patterns I found; could this be a hint that I need to get my gear (wardrobe) in order for the summer?  Hmmmmm, maybe?

Thanks for visiting and checking out my Junk Love!

Junk Love...on Friday!


I'm a little late displaying my Junk Love Finds.  I'm so excited to share these with you this end of week!

This vintage Betsey Johnson Design for Butterick pattern is WAY cool and so cute!  I will be sewing this dress for moi!

And, this pattern is so right for my baby girl for the summer!

Total, my find includes 33 vintage patterns!  The one below is great for my niece!

We will be so 'Retro Fabulous' this summer!

And, my husband would LOVE this item!

Now, I'll have to find some really colorful and cute fabrics to sew these new outfits.

Peace and Junk Love!
