Vintage Pattern Fun

I have a bad habit of going on eBay and ordering adorable vintage children’s patterns that I will never make. It’s funny because I’m not much of a stockpiler – living in a small space does that, but I have at least a dozen of these, probably spurred on by watching too much Mad Men.


This one made me laugh. Nowadays Gymboree has a “Husky” section. Back then they were more upfront – “suitable for chubbies.” One hopes that “Patsy”, for whom this pattern was apparently destined, never caught sight of the notation.
