A Vintage Pattern Haul

I recently acquired this score of lovely patterns via a reader. I've been trying to avoid all types of shopping - vintage pattern shopping in particular, which can be highly addictive! I couldn't resist these little gems, however, particularly because they're all so wearable, which I find many vintage patterns aren't (for me). Some of these you may just call "old" instead of "vintage", but whatever, personally I think they're all really special. The short green version of the first pattern is my favourite - I love the baby doll style. And oh those dreamy hairstyles!
