Hi all, I'll be managing the upcoming Vintage contest and we've got a dilema trying to "date" a pattern?

No info on pattern envelope, etc... Is there a website you all know that could help with this?

Thanks! If anyone knows it will be YOU all

Vintage Patterns Wiki here says this pattern was featured in Vogue Patterns July/August 1979.

I just posted the same link to Vintage Patterns Wiki in the contest thread (before seeing this message). It looks like this pattern misses the contest cut-off date by a year.

Yeah! Thank you all - too bad it's 1 year too late, but she's got tons of Vintage

Time to dig through my Vintage and get moving.

You all are a big help, thank you!

cemetarian used to have information on dating patterns on the website. Unfortunately, it looks likes she's now trying to sell it on PDF for $9.95.

Thank you all so much

We've used that link and I bookmarked, great to spend time looking at our past.

Kellie, yes I thought a few years ago the Cemetarian was the place to go, sad they want to charge for it. Tough times I suppose

Anyway thank you all for helping

Ebay has a few guides I've found useful. Here's one:

http://www.ebay.com/gds/Dating-Vintage-Sewing-Patterns-/10000000001319907/g.html

Try searching blogs -- several have done posts on this. Also, sometimes you can find the copyright date on the instruction sheet instead of the envelope. As a rule Simplicity was really good about putting the date on, while Butterick in the early 60s was not!
