McCalls Sewing Patterns for 14" Doll - Turn of the Century Middy Styles - Plus Bonus Pattern
Two antique McCalls sewing patterns, both for a 14" doll. The two envelopes measure 4 1/2" by 3" and contain thin tissue paper patterns. All are present in the first one shown in the pictures as there is a handy diagram on the back of the envelope showing how to lay out the patterns on the material. The second does not have this feature so there is no way of knowing whether the pieces are all there. Contains 7 pieces. This is also true of the pattern found in the old envelope.
The first two patterns are for 14" dolls and it could be assumed that the other is too. If you are interested in actually using these patterns, measurements of the pieces will be gladly provided.
The dropped-waist "Middy" style of clothing indicates that these are from around the turn of the 20th Century until about 1930.
All pieces show age-related tanning and the envelopes are slightly brittle and have slits on the side folds. The tissue paper patterns seem to be healthy and completely useable.
These were found together in a small doll truck that has been in long storage so the paper has absorbed that 'vintage' aroma that may be offensive to some. Please consider this if you have sensitivities or allergies.
