I would totally be interested if you have any womens clothing patterns, ie dresses, shirts, skirts. I'm trying to learn to sew and have been searching for old patterns. or any craft patterns. Let me know! Thanks!

I would be interested in any or all of the patterns, as there are families here with little to no support who are trying to sew.So any that are left over, I would like, please! Thank you!

I'd be interested in the Cabbage Patch dolls kit and a couple of little girl patterns.

I found a box of sewing patterns too...if anyone is interested, please let me know.  They are all for women's clothes (with a few exceptions, which I'll list) and the majority have never been used.  

The patterns range in size from XS to 24, with lots of sizes 12, 14 and 16.

I have dresses, casual and dressy; skirts and tops, blouses, slacks, shorts, capri pants, tunics, suits, blazers, jackets, even a winter coat pattern (very classy!)  Oh, and nightwear: nightgown, pajamas, robe.  Jumpers, and vests too.

Summer and fall fashions represented.  Some are older, some more current. 

I also have three craft patterns:  a Victorian Christmas pattern (tree skirt and ornaments), a Teddy Ruxpin tuxedo pattern (what was I thinking??) and a pattern for costumes for Christmas pageants (angels, shepherds, etc.)  Those are children's size 2-4 and I will even throw in gold metallic rick rack for your little angel!  (3 1/2 packages).

Send me a PM if you are interested.  I'll be happy to answer questions, search for what you are looking for, or ship them all to one lucky person!  wink

I would like some old or incomplete patterns to use in crafting-which means they would no longer be good for sewing!
