Simplicity pattern magazine Spring 1969


One of my most treasured possessions and greatest inspirations:



Just like the pattern books we have now, just really old.


With some funky ads:




My next project is the green dress from the first photo – without sleeves though.

    how cool! I love the style from this era and basically love all these patterns esp. the grey dress in the bottom picture. I look forward to seeing your version of the green dress!

    This is a lovely book! I loved lots of the designs. I particularly like the black and white with a red belt one too. The whole book is very elegant isn’t it? The ones that catch my eye are the simple designs in a striking colour. Makes me consider what I sew and perhaps I go for too much patterned fabric when actually I would get the look I want in plain colours! Treasure that book!
