Gil Brandao maternity skirt, I think from the sixties. I have many of his patterns and they are great! I thought some of you girls might need a maternity skirt...

I really want to make this one.
Has anyone made this?
My first two real vintage patterns (I've bought some reproductions before but now I'm getting braver!)
I also need to go "shopping" in my mom's sewing room. She probably still has every pattern she ever bought so that could be a gold mine!
Just got this pattern, but without instructions. Anyone by any chance have this pattern and could scan instructions? Mainly the pleats on bodice and sleeves. Looks like they're topstitched, but not sure.?

Gee, it's been quiet in here! No posts since February? I'm sure you've all still been buying patterns.
Here's a few I've bought recently.
This one ony has the coat, but I'm sure I can rustle up a similar skirt pattern out of my stash.
I do love me a McCalls pattern.
