More Free Vintage Patterns

Today we have two free vintage patterns from which you can choose!

I cannot find a copyright date on either pattern, but I do recognize the style of the child's coat pattern. That's because the coat I wore to kindergarten in the winter of '57 was like that one! I had the complete set, the coat, leggings and hat.

How to claim one of these patterns: For fastest submission, use our Vintage Pattern Request form that we setup especially for this. Each pattern will go to the first person who notifies us that they want it. No purchase necessary.
