It was the one on the right, above. Then the seller simply listed the rest of the pattern names/ numbers and had not checked to see if they were complete. So I went to the Vintage Pattern Wiki and looked each of them up, and here's the kicker. Each of the patterns had more than one search result show up. One was always an amazing 1950's pattern, the other always a hideous 1960's or 1970's alter ego.
For example, was I bidding on a lovely 1950's Butterick 6518?
Or was about to snag a dime a dozen 1970's Butterick 6518?
|This is actually sort of cute, but that's not the point.|
And what was really amazing, is that all of the really good patterns were either complete, or in their original factory folds.
I'm especially pleased to have added Simplicity 3694 (left) to my collection. If I ever attend the Air Force Ball, I'll be making it.
