Vintage patterns on the web

If this site has piqued your interest in old patterns, you're going to love Rusty Zipper Vintage Clothing. One section is just patterns--3,075 of them. Most are 60s and 70s, with a few 40s, 50s and 80s. On the one hand, I was disappointed not to find some that I was looking for--wondering if they've gone to that big sewing machine in the sky, but on the other, I've only looked at 720 of them. At this site, they are selling for $6-9.00 a pop. I definitely sold too low--if you ever see any prices written on my patterns, it means I put them in a garage sale about 25 years ago with no results.

The Vintage Cat also has wonderful old patterns, and many from the 30s, 40s and 50s, plus a number of children's and costumes.
