My vintage pattern stash

Yesterday I decided to document my vintage patterns, in the hope that it would stop me from buying really similar ones over and over again. I tend to get obsessed with certain styles you see, namely from the 1940s. This exercise made me realise just how much sewing I need to get through...

Anyway, I also thought it would be nice to share them with others, as they are far too beautiful for my eyes only!

    I seriously need to stop buying patterns and start making what I have though...
