Right before I went flouncing into my pilates-ballet fusion class this evening in all my black spandex-clad glory (great mental image, right?), a friend stopped by with a very gracious gift. In an effort to clear out space to make her own home studio, she's been getting rid of old assorted items. She braved the rain to give me a box full of her grandmother's vintage patterns. I got to go home with spoils tonight!
Check out the price difference between a Simplicity pattern from the 1970s and a Simplicity pattern today. Yeowch!
