    Yay! Thanks, gals! The seller said they didn't know if it had all the pieces so I'm crossing my fingers it does.
    Kamikat, I'm not planning on it right now. I've got lots of things in mind, so not sure I can squeeze it in before summer! Things with big skirts tend to cost a lot to repro, too, cause they take up a lot of paper. Maybe I could just do the swimsuit, though.

    Great patterns LD and Lauren.

    I am so exited about winning this one. I wanted it so badly.

    I also got these two as I didn't pay as much for the first one as I thought I'd have to.

    Wow! That first one is SO neat!! I love the way it comes down from the yoke and wraps like that!
    And you signature. I love that song! It's going to be stuck in my head for the rest of the night...

    Welp, I just got the cute swimsuit pattern but it's missing one of the halter tops and the instructions. Oh well... I can fake it for me, but no repro of this one for etsy. Bummer.

    Lauren: Boo-hoo. I hate when I get patterns that are missing something like that. :(

    Help gals

    Does anyone have a recomendation for a high waisted skirt pattern, longish and 30's ish in style? It can be vintage or modern with the right details. I want to create an outfit like this:

    I know, I know! We were just talking about suspenders! I seem to recall all those patterns were more dirndl full skirts though.

    VPLL, Decades of Style, and Past Patterns all have repro patterns for 1930s skirts! The latter two both offer them multi-sized.

    That skirt is super high waisted though, which reminds me of this pattern from the 50s:

    I bought this two weeks ago and it still hasn't arrived :(

    I *love* those seams!

    And I bought two from our very own lovely Lauren:

    I've been wanting to try scanties!

    And I might actually have a bathing suit this summer, providing this one hides the backside area appropriately ;)

    AJ, maybe the first one is all bogged down because of all the snow the east coast has been having. Don't lose hope on it!

    There;s a similar pattern at www.evadress..com. Search under 1930's or size 16. I wanted to post a picture but my computer is being sucky.

    This one makes me wish I suited that style, I sadly don't though. Well done on getting it!

    Thanks deadpandiva and cici. That eva dress 30's pattern is sooo adorable. And you're right cici, those 50's really high waisted pattern would translate pretty well to that look.
    I also found a cheat -- a high waisted pencil skirt at Newport News. I'm thinking about ordering that.

    So I found some really killer novetly print cotton but it took me forever to find a pattern I love equally.

    I picked this one up on Etsy. It's a Simplicity retro reprint.

    Reconstructing History now do 1940s patterns

    Reconstructing History are now doing a mid-20th century range of sewing patterns.

    https://www.reconstructinghistory.com/patterns.php?c=22&d=198&w=24&r=Y

    Word of warning though, I have used thier historical patterns for 17th century re-enactment costumes and found them suited to the more experienced seamstress, although the 20th century items may not be as difficult to work with as the construction techniques would be more what the modern dressmaker is used to.

    Interesting. Thanks for the heads up! I've heard mixed reviews of their patterns, but I haven't used them myself. Did you find the sizing accurate on the ones you purchased?
