I made the awful mistake of throwing out patterns I thought I would never use again. How many of us have made that mistake?? Probably most of us.
So, now, I would like help trying to find it.
It was purchased in the late 60's. It was a maternity dress pattern with a high waist with a pleat down the middle front, short sleeves, back zipper, no collar. No, I am not pregnant but I think that pattern can be used by me today. My figure is just like being preggo. Can anybody help find this pattern. I think it was probably Simplicity but not sure.
I, of course, will pay for it including shipping.
I only have one more thing to say. HELP!!

You can try looking through the vintage pattern wiki for it.

Thanks to all of you.

Looks like I am going to have a fun time going thru all those patterns. There are several possibilities of the ones I have looked at so far.

Again, thanks a lot.
