Patterns and Postcards swap

I'll be participating in the patterns and postcards swap that is being held at The Perfect Nose. The more people who join the better!


1. Gather any patterns, or magazines you have and aren't going to use anymore. Take good, close-up pictures of them and post them on your blog or flicker. Due this by the end of September.

2. Email or post at The Perfect Nose so that there is one central location to find all the people who are participating (and their patterns).

3. Contact the current owner via her blog to arrange a swap of your pattern for the one you want. Do this in October...

4. Mail your pattern to the new owner along with a postcard (the more outrageous the better). This should be done for the first week in November.

This skirt is made for waist size 28. I had to size up. I just took my measurements and added them to the one piece skirt-body pattern (there is a facing for the button holes and a waistband too. This is such a classic skirt. (Year Published: 1954)
