The bigger problem in using vintage patterns is our loss of our vintage figures! Body proportions have changed so much, especially mine. Pattern styles that were wonderful for our kids are not apppreciated by grandkids either, unfortunately. Do little girls still wear smocked dresses? or any dresses? Donation to costumers and theater departments is good. Thanks for the specifics on preservation.

LIttle girls do still like to wear dresses. I have a lot of 70's patterns for kids. I just made a few up and realized the pants ran way bigger than they do today, whereas the tops seem to be closer fitting back then.

I work as a playground monitor at a Northern California suburban elementry school and see hundreds of little girls. Little girls these days run and play as hard as the little boys so their clothing has to reflect their activity. Most little girls wear pants or shorts outfits- some very cute and stylish, some "creatively" put together by their wearers (grin). The ones who wear dresses usually have shorts on underneath to maintain modesty on the play structure to avoid the "I see London, I see France" comments. Picture day the smocked dresses and hair ornaments come out in full force. Little girls still love to dress up, but like the times, are very practical.
