We saw boxes of old dress patterns from the 1970s- Mom made lots of homemade dresses for me back in the 70s, so it was fun to look at those. As we were looking at them, we started reminiscing about the embroidery patterns that were popular in the 70s. Unfortunately, we didn't run across any that day...
But, fortunately, seeing them gave me the idea to look on Etsy to see if I could find some. (Because what cool vintage stuff can't you find on Etsy!?) And voila! I found several that I thought were cute, and bought them. Then I got out shirts Mom had made back in the day... I've saved the ones I found in her closet- which were mine, hers, and a jacket she made for my brother.
