Ann + Andy vintage patterns

How fun is it to look back at older magazines? I'm partial to McCalls annual pattern issue, it comes out around Christmas and is usually full of different craft and sewing projects. I found this little treat in McCall's volume XIII.




Three different patterns, one for the dolls, one for the a-line pinafore and my favorite, the jumper. I like the doll pattern and this is the one use, its very simple and come in 15'', 20'' and 25''. The reversible a-line pinafore can be worn with checked bloomers or plain colored bloomers, the Andy decal is a badge,in comes in sizes 2-6x. The jumper (2-6x) with the large Ann is actually appliqued pocket. Ann is embroidered separately and it comes in 3 different pocket sizes. I think I like this one the best because you don't see that kind of an outfit on children anymore, reminds me of a simpler time.



Each pattern comes with their transfer. The pattern numbers are 2529 for the pinafore, 2530 for the jumper and 2531 for the stuffed dolls. My magazine dates to 1970 which doesn't seem that long ago.
Each pattern retails for 85 cents....been awhile. C & G Design.

1970 seems like hundreds of years ago to me. Everything has changed since then.

Seems like yesterday to me.
Mom and David up today, along with company from Texas we are having lobster. Jack of all trades has a tent! Guess that's why the back yard was cleared.

You have magazines from the 70's! I was just moaning about how I have so many “old” magazines laying around from 3 years ago! No wonder you had to build a new house... LOL...

I Love Rag Wednesdays!

Hi Skeeter, Yep, I have some from the 70's, even some I've carried since high school. I know, I grumble every time I move them (this is the last!!!) But I wouldn't give them up. I have about 8 or 10 copies.

I can so see a little girl wearing a little raggedy ann shirt on the front. so cute! Everything from the 1970s seems really cool to me... I wasn't alive, but it still seems really cool, much better than the 80s.
