Confessions of a Pattern Junkie

I confess that my real passion for vintage patterns lies in little girl fashions. But every now and then a gem like this pattern, happens into my hands and I have to keep it because its too good to pass up. I received this "Davy Crockett" costume pattern in with some patterns I bought off of Ebay a few years ago. It was a freebie. The sad thing about this pattern is that a couple of the pieces are missing. I kept it anyway because the art work on the envelope is just too sweet to let go of.

I'm thinking about making something like this for my little boy who has a birthday coming up in May. He would be over the top with a Davy Crockett outfit and a BB gun.

  1. I agree about the art work on the envelope; I have old buttons still on their cards and the little pictures are wonderful. What little boy wouldn't love an outfit made like this!
