I've started to destash some of my vintage patterns over at my etsy store. I'm trying to be honest about things not in my size, not to my taste, or that I have multiples of from different companies. A perfect example is this 40's suit. I was originally drawn in by the cute illustration, and I love that first girl's giving the Victory V. Buuuut I already had this pattern in my stash:

They are a little different, but both patterns have that great 40's cut, with a tailored jacket and gored A-line skirt. The first pattern is a 34 bust, which I am decidedly not, and the second is a 40 bust, which after a large fba is my size. I also have a big soft spot for patterns not from the big 4. So I kept the second one and listed the first. Although I may need to alter it so I can add those soutache accented pockets the first pattern has. So cute!

I'm going to be listing a lot of patterns in the next few weeks, especially half sizes, so check in every so often if you're interested.

I'm also really enjoying trading patterns ( thanks, Khristie!). It's been a great way to exchange some of my smaller patterns for larger ones I might actually use, and know the patterns I give up are going to a good home.

How do you gals/gents decide which patterns get to live with you?
