Friends, I can barely contain my excitement! It’s not often I find a vintage layette sewing pattern than I’ve never seen before…but there’s always an exception to the rule and today I present to you the exception.
Simplicity 2823 from 1959
Behold! Look at views 1 and 2 – the dress & gown are divine. The pattern has yet to arrive; there was a bit of a kerfuffle with it. The seller sent the wrong pattern. Butterick 6245 arrived instead – I have several version of this pattern already, but the envelope is slightly different to the others that I have; it’s a 1960s reprint and the price differs to the one I already have.
I REALLY hope that Simplicity 2823 arrives complete and with the transfer sheet intact. Once upon a time I used to just hope the transfer sheet was included and still intact; these days I more often than not hope that the pattern is complete given the amount of them I’ve had arrive incomplete.
Fingers crossed all my hopes are realised; i’ll let you know how it is when it arrives…
