This Weekend’s Vintage Finds: 6/7/2010
This weekend’s Alameda Antique Show was fairly ho-hum in the vintage fabric and sewing notions department. One booth, however, had a box of 1930s patterns that I absolutely was in awe of. With the Gatsby Summer Afternoon coming up in September and my decision to do early 1930s instead of mid 1920s for our outfits, this box was just what I wanted to find at Alameda. I purchased four lovely patterns for $15 — my favorite being the Butterick beach pajamas. Other purchases included two Mademoiselle magazines from 1939 for $8 total and three yards of a cotton/silk blend for $10. I think the fabric will be marvelous for a 1930s dress.
